The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) FAIR-IMPACT support programme is offering two FAIR-related opportunities this month:

1.  FAIR Implementation workshop series: New Repositories for New Biodiversity Research

Explore the future of biodiversity research in the upcoming workshop of the FAIR Implementation workshop series! The workshop ‘New Repositories for New Biodiversity Research‘ will discuss new types of FAIR repositories working with biodiversity data driven by recent technological advances.


  • AI-based classification methods for image/sound/text/sequence data: the need for repositories to exchange pre-trained models and training data;
  • Repositories dealing with DNA sequencing data: central repositories for incremental aggregation of sequence variants to better assess haplotype diversity in natural and medical settings.

Event Details:

  • Date: June 13, 2024
  • Time: 11:00-12:30 CEST
  • Format: Virtual
  • Cost: Free (registration required)

Don’t miss this chance to engage with the community and shape the future of biodiversity research. Read more information of the workhop and register here.


2. Second open call for repositories & service providers (deadline 14th June)

The FAIR-IMPACT support programme helps repositories and data service providers to enhance their FAIR-enabling capabilities and develop action plans to improve them.

The support programme introduces services and tools that address topics, such as:

  • Repository policy
  • Making objects in the repository more FAIR
  • Automated FAIR assessment
  • Repository certification 

Learn more info about the Open Call, and join the programme to advance your capabilities and better position your organisation in the research landscape.
