FAIR data and principles

The FAIR data principles are a set of guiding principles to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. The principles provide guidance for scientific data management and stewardship in order to facilitate open science, the approach to scientific progress based on sharing available knowledge using collaborative tools and digital technologies.

The webinar will introduce and discuss the concepts of research data management and the FAIR data principles. Also, an overview of services and tools to support open science will be given. The webinar is aimed at data supporters working in universities and other scientific organizations. The aim of the webinar is that the participants can use the information provided in the webinar as a basis for further dissemination within their community.

The trainers in the webinar are Cees Hof and René van Horik, active in the EOSC-hub ( project and working at DANS, the Netherlands institute for permanent access to digital research resources ( The EOSC-hub project aims to bring together service providers to support data-driven research.

National capacity building event in Slovenia organized by UMUKM and Arnes.

In science, public infrastructure and everyday life, we are increasingly using large amounts of data and computer systems to store and process them. Through a series of initiatives, such as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, the European Community has provided everything needed to manage our data and support the advancement of science and technology. In Slovenia, these initiatives further encourage our domestic investment in data management, supercomputing networks, knowledge technologies and data repositories.
In cooperation with the Slovenian representatives of the European project NI4OS-Europe - National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe and the community of the Slovenian national supercomputing network SLING with the HPC RIVR project and supercomputers Maister, Trdina and EuroHPC Vega, a large data system for an open science repository which will start operating at the Institute of Information Science in Maribor at the beginning of next year, top researchers will be presenting their view on access to data, research data management and the use of computational resources.
