"Basically FAIR"
TKFDM announces 4th FAIRest Dataset Award


On the occasion of the Thuringian RDM Days 2023, the Thuringian Research Data Management Competence Network is sponsoring the fourth "FAIRest Dataset" Award.


We are looking for: the FAIRest dataset in Thuringia

Have you or your research group published a dataset that complies with the FAIR principles? Then take part in the fourth FAIRest Dataset Award! The Thuringian Research Data Management Competence Network (TKFDM) awards prize money of up to 2000 Euros to the dataset that best implements the FAIR principles. The FAIR principles were published in 2016 and are intended to help improve the findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of research data.


Award ceremony as part of the Thüringer FDM-Tage 2023

The winners will be announced during the Thüringer RDM Days 2023 and will have the opportunity to present their institution and their project. This year the motto is "Back to Basics - Forschungsdatenmangement an Thüringer Hochschulen" and the event will take place from June 19st to June 23th at university locations in Thuringia. More information on the Thuringian RDM Days 2023 will follow soon.


Conditions of participation

From February 15th to April 30th, 2023, all scientists at Thuringian universities have the opportunity to submit their published datasets, provided that they did not already receive the award in any previous FAIRest Dataset competitions. The submitted datasets are evaluated by the members of the Thuringian Competence Network for Research Data Management on the basis of the FAIR principles.
