There’s a lot of talk around the FAIR principles. But how can you put them into practice for your qualitative data? In this event, organized by Erasmus University, DANS and SURF, we will discuss several projects, tools and techniques to improve the FAIRness of qualitative data in research.

Qualitative data is often underrepresented in the discussion around open and FAIR research. Due to challenges like the sensitive nature of the data, data analysis complexity or ensuring validity and reliability, the degree of reuse in research is limited. More and more, however, solutions and strategies are being developed to circumvent these limitations.

This event aims to help researchers and data stewards working with qualitative data to make their data FAIR and open (where possible). Speakers will share their experiences with making qualitative data reusable and sharing their data, to name a few.

There will be space to discuss shared challenges and how to make progress. Sign up and secure a seat to hear about tools and ways to make your data FAIR.
