Enabling FAIR in Helmholtz Data Infrastructures - Workshop October 2021

Datum und Zeit: Donnerstag 28. Oktober 2021, 9:00-13:00

Ort: Zoom - Link wird an Teilnehmer versendet

Sprache: deutsch/englisch

Teilnehmer:

  • Teilnehmer an der Dateninfrastruktur-Erhebung

  • HMC Koordinatoren

  • AK Metadaten des DataHub

  • weitere per Einladung

Ziele:

  • Ergebnisse der Umfrage zu den Dateninfrastrukturen kommunizieren

  • Welche Hinweise für die Entwicklung der FAIRness und Anschlussfähigkeit der Helmholtz Dateninfrastrukturen lassen sich daraus ziehen?

Agenda:

Der Schwerpunkt der Veranstaltung soll auf Diskussionen und einen Austausch dazu liegen, wie HGF Dateninfrastrukturen ihre FAIRness verbessern können. Dazu liefern wir Input und erste Vorschläge zu einigen relevanten Themen:

  • Kurze Einführung in HMC Aufgaben, Ziele und bisherige Aktivitäten

  • Zusammenfassung der Ergebnisse der Erhebung zu Helmholtz Dateninfrastrukturen

  • Empfehlungen ausgewählter Interessensgruppen zur Umsetzung von FAIR

  • Kurze Vorstellung einiger (HMC) Metadaten Werkzeuge

  • Zum Umgang mit semantischen Konzepten in HMC

  • Was hat die HGF davon? Strategie, Zusammenfassung und Ausblick

Workshop Summary

On October 28, the initial HMC workshop entitled "Enabling FAIR in Helmholtz Data Infrastructures" took place together with the HMC Hub Earth and Environment (Hub EE), representatives of different data infrastructures and interested parties from HMC as well as from different infrastructure initiatives.

Based on the recent survey among Helmholtz Data Infrastructures in the research field Earth and Environment, the workshop aimed to report on the results of the survey and to put these results into a context of existing Data Science activities as well as the tasks and goals of HMC and the Helmholtz Association.

Impulse presentations by the HMC Hub EE formed the basis for the joint exchange:

In an introduction, the previous activities and goals of HMC and the Hub EE, as well as their integration into the research community were presented. Afterwards, first insights into the analysis of the survey results were given, which among others addressed the status and challenges of data infrastructures. Input on recommendations from various interest groups on the implementation of FAIR, was provided in the subsequent presentation "Unpacking FAIR principles". After an overview of available tools and services, the importance of a collective semantic strategy was highlighted.

It was discussed what conclusions can be drawn and what further activities and ways to improve the implementation of FAIR principles in data infrastructures should follow. The workshop concluded with a proposal to advance the implementation of FAIR in Helmholtz data infrastructures via a moderated co-design process ("FAIR Implementation Network").

Next Steps:

The "FAIR Implementation Network" idea will be presented in the Helmholtz DataHub and elsewhere. If the idea receives broad support from the identified stakeholder groups, it is planned to start the process with a first framing workshop in the first quarter of 2022. We will inform soon with a save-the-date. In addition, the information resources presented by the Hub EE will be further structured, annotated and made available.
