Workshop N.3: FAIRification put into practice - a joint workshop by EERAdata and the EERA tJP 'Digitalization for Energy'

We are happy to announce that EERAdata jointly organizes the 3rd EERAdata workshop together with the EERA tJP "Digitalization for energy" (DfE) as part of their annual conference. The workshop is organized with online webinars and hands-on sessions between 12 and 14 October 2021. Data interoperability and workflows are recurrent themes of all workshop sessions.



  • Discuss and develop workflows for large-scale FAIR and open (simulation) data
  • Synthesize community insights and formulate action points
  • Participate in a writing hackaton: contribute to a community paper!
