Euro-BioImaging’s Guide to FAIR bioimage data

February 1, 2023
FAIR Training Opportunities

Wondering how to make the most out of your bioimaging data? We have just the right event for you. Join us for a free, online workshop entitled “Euro-BioImaging’s Guide to FAIR bioimage data” on Tuesday, March 28th, from 14:00 CET-17:00 CET. Everyone is welcome!

About the workshop

This workshop will introduce the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) principles, focusing on their implementation for bioimaging data. We will explore the diverse motivations for adhering to the FAIR data principles while placing an emphasis on lowering the ‘activation energy’ required to begin your FAIR journey. This workshop is designed for both facility staff who are looking for ways to motivate and support instrument users to record high quality FAIR data, as well as for individual researchers who want to learn simple and effective steps to get started with FAIR.

We will cover how to meet the FAIR requirements of journals, funders and European projects and the associated data management practices. As these in most cases involve data sharing in public repositories we will introduce the main archives for bioimaging data and give a short demonstration of how to use them - again with an emphasis on keeping things simple and easy for a smooth start. More advanced topics include demonstrations of conversion pipelines into next generation file formats and advances in FAIR image annotations for AI-based techniques.

By the end of the workshop, FAIR will no longer seem like a scary and intimidating concept that you are putting off. Instead you will have the confidence to know what small adjustments you need to focus your attention on to elevate your bioimaging data to the next level.

Speakers will include representatives from Euro-BioImaging, BioImage Archive, Image Data Resoruce, the AI4Life project, and more. We are also pleased to present two user stories, featuring scientists who will describe their journey towards data deposition in bioimaging repositories: Katrín Möller, post-doctoral researcher at Biomedical Center of the University of Iceland (read the story) and Martin Schorb, Scientist and Engineer in advanced Electron Microscopy at EMBL (read the story).
