The 2021 ENVRI Community International Winter School on Data FAIRness is taking place on January 11-22, 2021. The theme of the school is "ENVRI-FAIR Resources: Access & Discoverability", and it will cover a range of topics including semantic navigation, Jupyter environments for visualisation and data discovery, resource access tools and cloud computing.
The Winter School is organised over a two-week period, on average dedicating around 40 hours in total (including preparations). It will be structured around daily activities, with scheduled lectures and presentations in the mornings (09-11), followed by associated group and individual work time (11-12).
Since the focus should is about supporting end users in how to make the best use of the data, understanding the end user perspective is very important to develop good user interfaces and services to interact with data. The main target groups are the staff at ENVRI data centres, researchers and PhD candidates with the aim to:
present state of the art technologies relevant to FAIRification of services
based on real-life use cases, encourage adoption of new technology to enhance data center functionality
enable new knowledge-exchange networks for ENVRI data professionals
For practical reasons, we can accommodate 30 participants in total. The selection of participants will be based on a mix of criteria, including motivation and use case descriptions.
The deadline for submitting applications is Thursday, December 17th
Towards ENVRI Community International Winter School DATA FAIRness
In July-September 2020 we organized a three-day webinar programme, which introduced the main topics of the winter school (the use of FAIR data in ENVRI Community, and for Environmental and Earth sciences research) with theoretical presentations, exercises and discussion. The training materials (slides, presentations, recordings, etc.) is available on the ENVRI-FAIR Training Platform.
