Open Science FAIR


OSFair2021 is organized as an emblematic initiative of OpenAIRE, co-organized by key international initiatives in the area of Open Science: COAR, EIFL, Force11, LA Referencia, LIBER, OPERAS, Sparc, Sparc Europe. OS Fair 2021 aims to bring together and empower open science communities and services; to identify common practices related to open science; to see what are the best synergies to deliver and operate services that work for many; and to bring experiences from all around the world and learn from each other

Open science (also referred to as open scholarship) is at a crossroads. Implementation and adoption are progressing, with researchers, research institutions, funding agencies, service providers and infrastructures all engaging at various levels. However, different models are emerging which produce a seemingly fragmented ecosystem and achieve small steps on top of traditional scholarly communication system. In order to enable international and interdisciplinary research, we need to ensure interoperability across communities and services while still maintaining our ability to support diversity of workflows and knowledge systems.

During the Open Science FAIR event we will have have a lightning talk entitled "Democratising FAIRness by adding metadata to a storage platform researchers love to use."

The topic will be presented by Guido Aben from AARNet, partner of our project. 

The lightning talk will take place during the third day of the event, 22 September 2021 at 11.30 am CEST. Learn more about how the Science Mesh service is relevant in the context of EOSC.
