WorldFAIR Deliverable Webinar Series: FAIR Implementation Profiles, the Cross-Domain Interoperability Framework and the WorldFAIR Methodology

28 June 2023, 13:00 – 14:00 UTC

This webinar will present our experience with creating FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs), and address the WorldFAIR methodology as presented in D2.1: FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs) in WorldFAIR: What Have We Learnt? The speakers will also expand on engaging with the Case Studies on their data, identification of ‘interoperability interfaces’ and the implications for the Cross-Doman Interoperability Framework.

D2.1 FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs) in WorldFAIR: What Have We Learnt?

This report gives a brief overview of the experience of the WorldFAIR project in using FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs). It describes the WorldFAIR project, its objectives and its rich set of Case Studies; and it introduces FIPs as a methodology for listing the FAIR implementation decisions made by a given community of practice.

WorldFAIR @ RDA’S 10 Year Anniversary: The WorldFAIR Case Study on Plant-pollinator Interactions (WP10)

In 2023 the Research Data Alliance is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. We’re excited to commemorate this important milestone with our community by organising a series of international and regional events and activities dedicated to a specific theme related to research data management of relevance to the RDA community.

As part of this event series, WorldFAIR WP10 (Agricultural Biodiversity) will present their findings from their discovery phase: FAIR assessments, good practices, tools and examples to create, manage and share data related to plant-pollinator interactions.

You can find out more about WorldFAIR WP10: Agricultural Biodiversity by visiting the dedicated webpage.

WorldFAIR @ RDA’s 10 Year Anniversary: Image sharing systems and practices in Cultural Heritage

In 2023 the Research Data Alliance is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. We’re excited to commemorate this important milestone with our community by organising a series of international and regional events and activities dedicated to a specific theme related to research data management of relevance to the RDA community.

As part of this event series, WorldFAIR Work Package 13 (WP13) presented their landscaping report identifying how Cultural Heritage institutions engage with FAIR (examining formats and image delivery technologies).

This workshop recording is now available below.

Introducing the WorldFAIR Cultural Heritage Image Sharing Working Group

This week the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) will publish the second deliverable for the Horizon Europe funded WorldFAIR Project Work Package 13, D13.2 Cultural Heritage Image Sharing Recommendations Report

The report looks at previous efforts by the cultural heritage sector towards FAIR alignment and presents 5 recommendations broadly applicable to the work of Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (or ‘GLAMs’) to further help in achieving this goal. The recommendations are ultimately a roadmap for the DRI to follow in improving repository services over the next year of the WorldFAIR Project, as well as a call for continued dialogue around ‘what is FAIR?’ within the cultural heritage research data landscape.

WG Activities

The DRI has been very fortunate to have an expert panel of contributors thinking about the issues underlying potential approaches to better FAIR alignment for the GLAMs. Over a period of 5 months, the WG met to refine our thoughts, starting at a high level with What is an image? and What do we mean by image data? We asked how GLAMs communicate complex information about:

  • Accessibility of original objects (meaning of original?)
  • Local fields in metadata
  • Language/linguistic barriers
  • Recognition of community rights/ownership of data
  • Surfacing administrative and preservation metadata
  • Distinction between data and metadata
  • Vocabularies vs. PIDs

and more?

The WG reviewed WP13’s first deliverable D13.1 Cultural Heritage Mapping Report: Practices and policies supporting Cultural Heritage image sharing platforms and, shortly thereafter, began considering responses to a number of themes that came out of that report: Transparency, Mutability, Technology, Rights and Costs (see the mind map image below).The recommendations produced for the report address specific issues that arose from those thematic discussions, further refined in our final WG meetings and editing in-document. 

WP13’s Recommendations Report work would not have been possible without the valuable contributions of our expert Working Group. Our sincere thanks to all the members for giving their time and goodwill to this project!
