IPERION HSIntegrating Platforms for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage Science

HS Academy Webinar 06/2022: FAIR data: the challenges of Interoperability

The webinars are organized by the HS Academy, a collaborative initiative between IPERION HS (www.iperionhs.eu) and E-RIHS (www.e-rihs.eu). The two European projects integrate facilities of recognized excellence in Heritage Science, offering access to a wide range of high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data, tools and training opportunities for advancing knowledge and innovation in the field.

This webinar will face the challenges of data interoperability.

F.A.I.R.data: Findable – Accessible – Interoperable – Reusable, will be shortly introduced and the importance of working towards FAIR data will be discussed, especially in Heritage Science. Heritage Science is an extremely broad and interdisciplinary field which involves both people with very different backgrounds as well as the most diverse techniques in every part of the planet with the goal of studying, understanding and preserving material and immaterial natural and cultural heritage. The challenges of making data interoperable using different characterization techniques on material samples such as works of art, geological and archaeological samples will be discussed.
