Understanding the implications of implementing FAIR data principles in the life sciences
(Ebtisam Alharbi)
This talk proposes a methodological framework to examine the implications of adopting FAIR principles in life sciences data, using access to the European research infrastructures ELIXIR (https://elixir-europe.org/) and the FAIRplus project (https://fairplus-project.eu/) as a vehicle. This framework attempts to establish a bridge between FAIR data principles and their implementation in life sciences research in order to understand the long-term benefits that would follow. The framework will support collaboration between policymakers, science researchers, resource managers, and many other experts.

Open through collaboration: how libraries can promote research
(Katherine Stephan)
This talk will look at some of the ways in which libraries can promote collaboration, both within universities, and between universities and non academic partners such as regional networks, government agencies and local groups. By embracing this "collaborative turn", libraries will be better able to promote open research, public engagement and collective learning. I will draw on a number of practical examples that place a particular focus on low-cost, high-benefit collaboration, and which are amenable to modification and revision. The talk will be useful for anyone who wants to develop a greater appreciation and understanding of how the library can promote research, and how they might collaborate with others.
