Harnessing FAIR Data event for researchers

Harnessing FAIR Data event for researchers

Professor Susanna-Assunta Sansone will be taking part in a FAIR Data event taking place at Queen Mary University of London next week (3rd September).

Harnessing FAIR Data - Why missing data matter - focuses on researchers who employ or are seeking to use data in their work. FAIR is a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.

The event, hosted by QMUL, UCL and the SES Consortium, aims to better understand the cross-disciplinary practice of sourcing, using and managing data and its associated implications, such as ownership, standards and metadata, and access and licensing. Experienced speakers from around the UK will come together to explore FAIR data and services.

Professor Pam Thomas, Open Research Data Taskforce, and PVC (Research) at the University of Warwick, will give the keynote, focusing on the Final Report of the Open Data Task Force.

Professor Sansone is Associate Professor (FAIR Data Science) at the Oxford e-Research Centre (Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford), where she focuses on knowledge and information management and interoperability of applications in the life, environmental and biomedical sciences. She will present her journey and work with and for a variety of communities to implement an ecosystem of resources to enable and support data FAIRness. She will also summarize the work around objective and quantitative FAIR metrics and the role of the FAIRsharing registry of standards, databases, repositories and data policies.

Professors Thomas and Sansone will also take part in a panel discussion along with Dr Paul Ayris, Pro-Vice-Provost (UCL Library Services) and Professor Henry Rzepa, Emeritus Professor of Computational chemistry at Imperial College London.
