What We Do

And you can, too!

How to put the FAIR Data Principles into practice? How to apply them to scientific software? We want to learn from each other and teach ourselves the necessary skills. Having started this journey at TIB's "FAIR Data & Software" workshop, we continue it with this study group.

Skill Sharing

Share your coding and data skills and tools with your students, colleagues and friends in a casual, no-pressure environment.


Get together on your research projects, learn from each other and share what you know.

Community Building

Meet new people working and/or learning at TIB, LUH or in Hannover and find out what we can achieve by working together.

FAIR Data Principles: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable
