FAIR Digital Objects: From Theory to Practice 

Implementing professional solutions across sectors

“FAIR Digital Objects (FDO) provide a conceptual and implementation framework to develop scalable cross-disciplinary capabilities, deal with the increasing data volumes and their inherent complexity, build tools that help to increase trust in data, create mechanisms to efficiently operate in the domain of scientific assertions, and promote data interoperability.”

After a successful 1st International FAIR Digital Object (FDO) Conference in Leiden, the FDO Forum will host an FDO Implementation Summit in March 2024 in Berlin, Germany. The venue of this Implementation Summit is the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science, right in the city centre of the German capital.

This FAIR Digital Object Implementation Summit aims to bring together experts from all over the world who are planning and developing FDO implementations (data scientists, data infrastructure architects, data solution developers, data stewards, data curators, industry data experts, and policy makers). There will be exchange formats to foster interactions including early career professionals. Presentations and lightning talks from data scientists and developers engaged in Fair Digital Object activities will give deeper insights into FDO concepts and implementation.

A call for papers is open from 1. Nov 2023 on and can be seen at the web-site. The summit will be preceded by a training day and a newcomers session which can be selected during the registration. The number of participants in the summit and the training courses is limited. The summit will support online interactions. The registration for the Summit and the Training Day will open in late November 2023.

All relevant information will be shared here:
