RDA, the Research Data Alliance, in collaboration with the universities of Turin, Milan, Bologna , Trento and Parma and supported by CNR, AISA, APRE and OpenAIRE organizes a two-day workshop about sharing, reuse, and reproducibility of research data on few selected scientific fields - and related research infrastructures - of strategic relevance in Europe.

Workshop overview and objectives

According to the Guiding Principles for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable Data – so called FAIR principles – launched by the Data FAIRport initiative and recently adopted by the European Commission Guidelines on FAIR Data Management in Horizon 2020 the aim of this workshop is to bring new lymph to the political, legal, technical and technological debate around re-use and reproducibility of research data, namely in Italy.

Starting from requirements and concrete experiences of research infrastructures and relying on the results and on-going activities of specific RDA Working and Interest Groups, this workshop will call to action the coordinators of research infrastructures, individual researchers, funding agencies, research institutions, data scientists, data librarians / curators and computing scientists to identify which of the FAIR guidelines can be effectively supported by the current technology, which national policies are supporting their implementation and what are the challenges still open towards a concrete implementation of the FAIR principles in Italy.
