Online Workshop: FAIR Principles and Religious Studies

29 September 2023 - 29 September 2023

We are opening a series of online workshops dedicated to the topics that we envision as important for the Religious Studies community and that are also addressed by our services. The first one will be held September 29, 2023 on the topic of FAIR principles and Religious Studies.


The concept of FAIR data, data that meet the principles of being Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable, is, with increasing speed, being introduced into various research domains, including Religious Studies.

Online Workshop

The online “RESILIENCE Workshop: FAIR Principles and Religious Studies” is interesting for researchers in Religious Studies, librarians, archivists and other interested. It will make you familiar with the FAIR principles, with trusted digital repositories for finding, accessing, reusing and sharing data, with EOSC and the role of research infrastructures such as RESILIENCE. You will also learn why Data Management Plans, standards, formats, rights and licences, GDPR etc. are important in the context of good data management practices.

We want to engage with our community in the most effective way, and we value the arising questions and needs.

Therefore, the workshop is organised in two steps:

  1. a webinar, which is pre-recorded and sent to all interested participants;
  2. a live workshop, addressing questions and offering a hands-on session.

In the hands-on session, guided by the expert trainers, you can practice making your data set ready for publication according to the FAIR principles.

Date and Time

Friday September 29, 2023, 15:00 h – 16:45 h CEST via Zoom.


Registration for the workshop is closed.

If you have registered by September 6, you will be invited to send in your questions beforehand to the trainers, so that they can answer them during the workshop. If you have registered after September 6 you will not have this option; however, there will also be room to ask questions during the workshop.

Soon you will find here the link to the pre-recorded webinar, containing instructions how to prepare for the workshop.
