2021 was a year of remarkable community-building and growth for 4TU.ResearchData. Following its launch in 2020, in close collaboration with our partners, we’ve built and supported a community comprising more than 145 members.
Researchers and research support professionals from over 20 univerisities and research institutions now collaborate on various activities related to FAIR data practices, including thematic community calls, workshops and training, as well as joint project proposals.
I am also proud of the renewed commitment from our consortium institutes to continue our joint efforts to promote and support FAIR research data practices. This commitment, combined with strong engagement from our community members in discipline-specific activities positions us to take on new roles and responsibilities related to advancing national and European FAIR Data agendas.
