To realise the full potential of a FAIR ecosystem in which research outputs
can be easily shared and optimally reused, we have to look beyond the
FAIRification of data and other digital objects and consider the
infrastructure and services that act on those objects.

To help providers ensure their data services are ‘FAIR enabling’, FAIRsFAIR
is developing a FAIR assessment framework for service owners. The framework
can be used to gauge where change is needed, and provides actionable
recommendations for incremental improvements.

In this webinar we will present a first version of this assessment
framework, as recently published on Zenodo (

Koers – SURF
Dr Hylke Koers heads up the SURF Data Management Services group, which
develops and operates services to help research institutes manage their
research data in a robust, safe, easy and cost-effective way. Hylke joined
SURF in 2018, prior to which he was a Product Director at Elsevier, working
on innovations to the scholarly article such as interactive plots and the
Virtual Microscope. He co-founded the ICSU-WDS/RDA Working Group that
created the Scholix framework, an emerging industry standard for linking
research data and  literature. He currently leads FAIRsFAIR task 2.4 on
‘FAIRness’ of data services & software, and contributes to the EOSC
architecture WG and EOSC-hub WP12. Hylke holds a PhD in theoretical
astrophysics from the University of Amsterdam.

Herterich – University of Edinburgh
Patricia joined the DCC as a Research Data Specialist in September 2019.
She manages the DMPonline service and contributes to FAIRsFAIR work on
among others the FAIRness of data services and software and FAIR
Certification. Before moving to the UK, she has worked as a data librarian
at CERN’s Scientific Information Service working closely with software
developers to deliver data and code sharing solutions. In 2016, she joined
the University of Birmingham as Research Repository Advisor, providing
training and advice on research data management and managing the
University’s institutional repositories. Patricia is a Software
Sustainability Institute Fellow 2019 and an Open Life Science programme
mentor for cohorts 1 and 2.
