Assessing national current FAIR-enabling capabilities

The "FAIR Implementation Workshop - Assessing national current FAIR-enabling capabilities" will take place on 14 May 2024 14:00-16:00 CEST. Confirm your registration below. Note: Registration for the workshop is free but mandatory.

Over 700 research organisations, funders, assessment authorities, professional societies, and their associations have agreed on a common direction and principles for reforming the assessment of research, researchers and research organisations, outlined in the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment. They  are also committed to implementing changes within their organisations.  

The Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment, CoARA, offers a platform for collaboration and mutual learning. However, given the complex substance of the reform process, providing support for institutions to test, design, and carry out in-depth institutional changes is also of paramount importance to implement the Agreement commitments.

This two-hour workshop will focus on the topic of research assessment to help the selected candidates to draft their FAIR implementation action plan by taking into account the research assessment aspect.
