The launch event of the FAIR Office Austria took place on 9 June. The FAIR Office Austria is a result of the FAIR Data Austria project. The FAIR Office Austria has set itself the task to connect stakeholders from research communities and service providers in order to jointly advance the fair FAIR principles in Austria. At the same time, it is linked to the global GO FAIR initiative.
At the launch event, speakers from the GO FAIR initiative, ministries and the participating universities looked at the topic of FAIR from different angles. In particular, European initiatives and legal frameworks relevant for FAIR as well as the technical side of FAIR were presented. Case studies were used to explain how the FAIR principles facilitate the handling of sensitive data and the cooperation between different institutions. The FAIR Office Austria will support the exchange on FAIR topics in the Austrian research landscape.
We are happy about many participants, exciting presentations and good wishes for our FAIR Office Austria.
The presentation and video recordings from the event are now available:
