WHAT: The interactive workshop "Services to Support FAIR Data" is part of the larger event Linking Open Science in Austria.

What makes a service FAIR? What does this mean for researchers? What are the priorities for implementing FAIR data and FAIR services? These are just some of the questions that this one-day workshop will address. The workshop comes in the context of two major EC projects, RDA Europe and OpenAIRE, which both aim to support Open Science and the implementation of FAIR principles within their community-driven recommendations, service provisioning and researcher support.


This interactive workshop aims to discuss with the audience what it means for researchers to make their data FAIR and how institutions and services can help them to achieve findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable data. The four case studies showcase services already in place and give insights from different parts of the research data lifecycle.


In the first part of the workshop, researchers and infrastructure providers and managers will be invited to share their perspectives on what it means to make data FAIR and how institutions or services help researchers make their data FAIR. Attendees will be invited to share challenges, barriers and future perspectives.

In the second part of the workshop, case studies and a plenary discussion will highlight services in the FAIR data ecosystem. The four presenters will address aspects of FAIR supported by their service, the strengths and gaps in FAIR service provision, and how they can interoperate and engage with other services.

Why attend?

  • Contribute to the definition of FAIR Services
  • Learn about FAIR implementation recommendations
