FAIR4Health continues to look forward to establish collaborations and synergies with other initiatives dealing with FAIR data in the health domain

The online workshop “FAIR Data Infrastructures for Biomedical Communities” is organized by the GMDS project group "FAIR Dateninfrastrukturen für die Biomedizinische Informatik", established in early 2019.

The aim of this project group is to present the activities in various projects and at different German research locations with regard to infrastructures for FAIRes (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data management. To this end, a joint exchange of experience will take place in order to plan joint concepts (e.g. dissemination of FAIR, coordination of developments, standards and guidelines, etc.) in the field of biomedical informatics and the underlying data and to develop implementation strategies.

The goal of this workshop is to present the GMDS project group as well as data infrastructure approaches and corresponding initiatives and their platforms for biomedical basic and translational research, which are based on the FAIR principles for scientific data management. The workshop will start with a keynote presentation about the FAIR guiding principles for scientific data management and stewardship and their implementation in the life sciences, which will be followed by several presentations introducing national and international initiatives that aim at facilitating “FAIRification” of data in the biomedical research area. The participants of the workshop will discuss the requirements for domain-specific data management infrastructures and their underlying prerequisites such as data standards and standardisation strategies. Strategic approaches for FAIR data management will be outlined as a basis for the next steps and joint activities. The target group of the workshop includes infrastructure providers who develop and operate FAIR tools and platforms for biomedical research, representatives of the relevant specialist communities and research networks that use or wish to use FAIR data infrastructures, as well as all other interested parties interested in the improvement and better dissemination of FAIR data management strategies.
