Genome BC is thrilled to present our ongoing series on Data Literacy. This series aims to bring national and international experts together to help deepen our understanding of different data related initiatives, standards and resources.

Developing a better shared understanding of benefits and risks related to data will help advance data collection, sharing, and use in sectors such as health, agrifood, and natural resources. For example, much of the datasets resulting from Genome BC funded projects have value and utility beyond the purpose for which they are originally generated. Unlocking their potential is an interdisciplinary and translational challenge which requires the engagement of multiple stakeholders including funders, data providers, innovators, researchers and end users.

What you'll learn in this session:

  • What the FAIR guiding principles are
  • How the introduction of the FAIR guiding principles changed the research landscape
  • What tools are available for assessing FAIRness
  • What our role is in making sure our research data is FAIR
