ENVRI Community International School “Services for FAIRness”
Online, from 27 September to 8 October 2021
Organised by ENVRI-FAIR and LifeWatch ERIC, the school is at its fourth edition, having established itself as an unmissable opportunity to learn about FAIRness in the framework of Research Infrastructures. Having gone into depth on data FAIRness and data management during previous editions, in autumn 2021 the school focused on Services for FAIRness, from their design to their development and publication.
The school was organised over a two-week period, on average dedicating around 50 hours in total (including preparations and self-study). It was structured around daily activities, with scheduled lectures and presentations in the mornings (09-13), followed by associated group and individual work time.
As the focus of the School was on supporting end users in how to make the best use of data and services, understanding the end user perspective was key to developing good user interfaces and services.
The main target groups were the staff at ENVRI data centres, researchers and PhD candidates.
