Looking back: ELIXIR-CHARME Workshop ‘FAIR Data and Data Stewardship in ELIXIR: How to write your own FAIRy tale

On 23 March 2017, the ELIXIR Interoperability and Training Platforms organised an ELIXIR-CHARME Workshop ‘FAIR Data and Data Stewardship in ELIXIR: How to write your own FAIRy tale’ at the ELIXIR All Hands meeting in Rome. The organisers were Chris Evelo and Celia van Gelder of ELIXIR-NL.

The workshop was organised in a collaboration between the ELIXIR interoperability and training platforms and the COST action CHARME (CA15110). The overarching theme was FAIR, and all its different aspects. The speakers showed tangible examples from different application domains about how they are implementing Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability. In addition, we addressed how to evaluate that (FAIR metrics).
