This hands-on course is specifically designed for marine biologists to teach them how to make their data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR). By adhering to FAIR principles, marine biologists can ensure that their data is easy to discover and use, extending its popularity and longevity far beyond their expectations. The course spans three days and covers the core concepts of FAIR data, helping participants understand what it entails and how to achieve it. Through a combination of lectures and interactive sessions, marine biologists will learn how to make their diverse data types FAIR.
