Konferenser och symposier Symposium: Towards better science – FAIR and open research data in practice

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the journey towards a more transparent, collaborative and impactful scientific future at KI!

As we stand on the precipice of a new era in scientific research, the importance of transparent, accessible, and reusable data has never been greater. The Swedish government and the EU have set ambitious goals: all research data should be FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) and open by 2026. The principle is “as open as possible, as restricted as necessary”. But what does that mean in practice for us at KI?

Join us at this symposium to hear about the work of the Open Science Working Group at KI, give suggestions for activities to improve open science at KI, and hear from KI researchers and core facility perspectives on open science and FAIR. This short symposium is organised by the Open Science Working Group under the Committee for Research.

No registration needed.
