PRESENTER:

ABOUT WEBINAR:

The FAIR principles have been introduced as a guideline for good scientific data stewardship. They have gained momentum at a management level and are now for example part of the project template for EU Horizon 2020 projects. This raises the question what  research groups and projects can do to implement them.

Hugo Besemer will introduce the ideas behind the FAIR principles, and elaborate on discussions about their implementation in Wageningen and with project coordinators.

Hugo Besemer has written two blog post about this issue: Can Wageningen be FAIR ?; Vocabularies and the ‘I’ in ‘FAIR Data principles.

ABOUT SPEAKER: 

Hugo Besemer studied plant Protection at Wageningen University, and has been active in different capacities in the Dutch Agricultural Knowledge System. Recently he has been  concentrating on research data management.

He has also been working as a consultant for many international organizations including DFID, CTA, CGIAR and INASPFor FAO he has been doing a variety of things, including curriculum development and authoring lessons for IMARK modules, and for them he wrote his first AGRIS input manual with a pen.
