*About the webinar:* It is considered one of the seven capital sins in Open
Science to publish data without sufficient provenance to allow other people
to reuse them for reconfirmation of your results (adding to the
reproducibility crisis). Next to publishing your data as FAIR digital
objects, for machines as well as people to (re-use) metadata (including
rich provenance need to be collected, properly constructed and published as
part of good data stewardship). The good old scientific article has served
us for ages, but is unreadable for machines. We still need it, but its role
is now more and more a form of rich, human readable metadata to the data
created and interpreted and leading to some scientific claims in the
article. Publishing data as ‘supplementary to an article’ is not considered
good practice in the new FAIR world of Open Science and therefore the
mindset should change and that change should be rewarded to more dynamic
and machine readable scholarly communication. Practical and current
examples from COVID-19 will be given.

Name of the Speaker: *Barend Mons*
Designation: *Professor*
Affiliation: *President CODATA, Strategic director GO FAIR, Prof.
BioSemantics LUMC*

Barend Mons is a global expert on FAIR principles and he led the 5 day long
early meeting in January 2014 (Leiden) where the principles were first
defined. Originally a molecular biologist with 15 years of basic research
experience on malaria parasites and vaccines, he refocused in 2000 on
semantic technologies and later on Open Science. He has thus been in this
field from the very beginning and started various early movements for open
science ‘avant la lettre’ (a.o. Wiki professional, Concept Web Alliance).
Mons published over 100 peer reviewed articles and more recently a handbook
named: Data Stewardship for Open Science. He was the senior author on the
now widely cited FAIR principles paper in Nature’s Scientific Data in 2016.
In 2015, Barend was appointed Chair of the High Level Expert Group (HLEG)
for the European Open Science Cloud, and the group published its report,
which marked a critical step towards realising the aspiration of the EOSC.
After leaving the HLEG he continued to be active towards the practical
realisation of the EOSC, defined in the report as the Internet of FAIR data
and services. Three countries (The Netherlands, Germany and France) took
the early initiative to create a Global, Open approach to the
implementation of FAIR principles in practice, called GO FAIR, with the aim
to kick-start the developments towards EOSC in a global, open science and
innovation context. Mons was appointed director of the Dutch International
Support and Coordination Office of the infinitive with sister offices in
Germany and France. Mons is the elected president of CODATA
<http://www.codata.org/>, the standing committee on research data related
issues of the International Science Council <https://council.science/>.
