Harmonizing FAIR Data in Materials Science with NFDI-MatWerk

Welcome to the Research Data Alliance's newest working group "Harmonized Terminologies and Schemas for FAIR Data in Materials Science and Related Domains". This initiative marks a significant step towards advancing the FAIR principles - Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability - in the realms of chemical and materials research.

What they Aim to Achieve:

The goal is to increase the adoption of FAIR principles, particularly focusing on interoperability and reusability, backed by enhanced resources and shared metadata. It is aimed to review the current practices and develop comprehensive recommendations and guidance for professionals in these sectors.

Your Role and Impact:

By participating in this Working Group, you will be at the forefront of shaping the future of data management in materials science. Whether you are a seasoned researcher, a data steward, or a student, your input and expertise are invaluable.

How to Get Involved:

  1. Community Review: You are invited to review the Case Statement and provide your feedback. Your insights are crucial in refining the approach and recommendations.
  2. Join the Working Group: Engage directly in the efforts by becoming a member of the Working Group. Simply register or log in on the RDA website and join the group.
  3. Collaborate and Share: Be part of a community that values collaboration and open exchange of ideas. Share your experiences, challenges, and solutions with peers from around the globe.

What's Next?

Once you join, you will have access to the detailed work plan, ongoing activities, and a platform to share your expertise. They are committed to providing a collaborative environment where every voice is heard and every contribution matters.

Join today in this endeavor to harmonize data practices in materials science. Become a member and contribute to the future of FAIR data.
