Applying FAIR principles to open science and industry to drive innovation: challenges and opportunities



FAIR principles provide a unique framework for creating a machine actionable data management environment supporting Open Science and Open data but also data and information exchange within organizations such as industries. In this session, the speakers discuss the theory and practice of implementing FAIR Principles for applied science and industrial research.
The workshop is a meeting point for OntoCommons and several key initiatives focusing on FAIR (FAIRsFAIR, FairSharing) and the Open Science community. Through this workshop the participants can gather inputs and suggestions for implementing FAIR and Open Science/Data from the Open Science community.



The target audience of the workshop is mainly data managers, applied researchers (e.g., industrial applications) and open science researchers, ontologists/knowledge engineers who are looking for guidance towards making their data FAIR. Additionally, members of various ontology-based standardization projects can benefit from the workshop by learning about FAIR principles and how to apply and assess them on their pilots.
