Research Software Workshop: guidelines and metrics for metadata curation (co-located with RDAP20)

24 Mar 2023

FAIRCORE4OSC and FAIR-IMPACT are conducting the "Research Software Workshop: guidelines and metrics for metadata curation", co-located with the RDA Plenary 2023 in Gothenburg (Sweden) at Lindholmen Conference Centre in Gothenburg (Sweden), Decibel Room on 24 March between 09:00-12:00 CET. This event will gather interested and active members of the academic software community.

The workshop will collect existing guidelines for research software and identify the gaps with the Scholarly infrastructures for Research Software (SIRS) Report, from the EOSC Executive Board Working Group Architecture Task Force. The workshop also aims to review CodeMeta initiative vocabulary and its crosswalk table to extend interoperability, as well as discuss curation mechanisms for Research Software to improve the metadata quality.

During the workshop, the strategy pyramid for Culture Change will be discussed as it relates to the European projects FAIR-IMPACT and FAIRCORE4OSC. 

The work conducted during this workshop will contribute to the FAIR-IMPACT guidelines to archive, reference, describe and cite Research Software and the FAIR-IMPACT metrics for FAIR Research Software. The goals consist on:

  • Identifying what we have - what is the current landscape of guidelines and metrics for Research Software;
  • Discussing what we need - what are the needs that can be provided by infrastructures and research support staff;
  • Planning how we create adapted guidelines and metrics to the current reality and how we improve the scholarly ecosystem.

Our role

As the leader of both projects’ communication work packages, Trust-IT assist in covering everything from event promotion through our web and social media channels at the co-located workshop with the RDA Plenary 2023 in Gothenburg (Sweden), co-representing FAIR Impact and FAIRCORE4EOSC.

FAIR-IMPACT and FAIRCORE4EOSC aim to work in close collaboration with other actors in the EOSC ecosystem, including the EOSC Association itself, the H2020 project EOSC-Future and many others.  The two projects are complementary instruments enabling an operational, open and FAIR EOSC ecosystem. Where FAIRCORE4EOSC will develop EOSC-Core components to adopt, FAIR-IMPACT in its turn will support the implementation of FAIR-enabling practices across scientific communities and research outputs at a European, national, and institutional level. 

We can be the event management team of your research project, making sure that physical, hybrid or digital dissemination events are a success and make a tangible impact on your target audience.
