Data Interoperability Workshop, 31st May at 14.00-15.30 CEST  

Data standardization means converting data to a common format, allowing different users to process and analyze it for, e.g., collaborative research and large-scale analysis. Standardization is a necessary requirement for data to be interoperable so that it can be integrated from multiple sources and scientific domains, which in turn is one of the critical steps to meet the FAIR data principles of findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability.

This on-line workshop, arranged by Arctic PASSION, INTERACT and SIOS, will provide the participants with an introduction to standardization and interoperability of metadata and data. In addition, the participants will learn about two common data standards and practical examples how they can be utilized in research.

Register to the workshop by 30th May by filling in the registration form. The workshop is free of charge. Registrants will receive the link to join the on-line meeting by e-mail in the morning of the workshop (CEST).
