Imagining the science future: Moving beyond publications to make data matter

“Imagine a world where the preponderance of Earth, space, and environmental science data, software, and models are routinely shared in ways that allow easy discovery, recombination, reuse, and to test reliability, and where information about samples, methods, and tools are standardized, available, and linked across publications.” – ENABLING FAIR DATA COMMITMENT STATEMENT IN THE EARTH, SPACE, AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES

This year, as AGU celebrates its centennial, AGU also celebrates the successful work of the Enabling FAIR Data Project. The Data FAIR at AGU Fall Meeting provides researchers with opportunities to engage with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain and learn about skills and techniques that will help further your research and make your data and software open and FAIR.  The Data FAIR activities include Town Halls, Workshops at the AGU Booth, and a reference desk hosted by the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) and staffed with experts from the Earth and space science informatics community and demos located at Exhibit Hall Booth #513. Attend these sessions and events to improve your data skills and practices!
