Webinar “What is a Chemical? Handling Chemical Data Across Disciplines” on 2022-09-22 tackled key issues of research data interoperability in global interdisciplinary context. This webinar was organised jointly by the IUPAC and the WorldFAIR project.
“What is a chemical” might sound trivial, but making data of chemicals interoperable and understandable in all fields of science where they are relevant is far from it. The webinar included presentations of experts from different sciences, presenting their own understanding on chemicals and their presentation in research data.
The recording of the webinar is available in the IUPAC Youtube channel:
