Workshop on FAIR awareness:
From Principles to Implementations

Join us for a two-day workshop on FAIR awareness with two experienced trainiers from the GO FAIR Foundation (NL) under the overall coordination of TU Wien (Library and Center for Research Data Management). The workshop is organised by TU Wien and the GO FAIR Austria office

The goal of this initiative is to increase the awareness of the FAIR Guiding Principles that help to automate the Findabiltiy, Accessibility, Interoperation and Reuse of data and digital services. The workshop will provide historical and technical context to help stakeholders better appreciate the value of FAIR and how FAIR might impact their own work in an academic environment. We will also explore the key issues around the implementation of FAIR, and consider technology trends in FAIRification and the FAIR Orchestration of research data.

Please note: The workshop is thematically embedded in an Erasmus week that takes place the following week and is organized by the TU Wien Library.

25 and 26 May 2023,  9:00 – 17:00 (both days)

TU Wien Bibliothek (Library), Room DD 05 B04 (5th floor), Resselgasse 4, 1040 Vienna.

Online participation via Zoom is also possible.


The workshop is targeted towards a broad range of stakeholders, ranging from executives, policy makers, and administrators, to information technology experts, researchers, and data stewards. Although the content is largely non-technical, a few ‘hands on’ sessions will help to ground key concepts in practical examples and exercises.
