The road to FAIR data?

The FAIR principles have rapidly become widely recognized as a framework for making research data available and possible to find, harmonize and reuse. In this autumn's SND Forum, we focus on how to make Swedish research data "FAIR". Proven methods and standards for producing "FAIR data" will be presented and discussed by invited experts, such as Ivana Veršić from CESSDA ERIC, Heiko Tjalsma from DANS in the Netherlands, Maggie Hellström from ICOS and Magnus Geber from the Swedish National Archives.

The forum will be held in English.
