Assessing the FAIRness of a prototypical PaN instrument at BESSY II

Monday 15th November 2021 from 14:00 → 15:00 Europe / Berlin. Dr Markus Kubin and Dr Gerrit Günther employed the RDA’s FAIR Data Maturity Model to assess the FAIRness of data produced by a prototypical PaN instrument at the BESSY II synchrotron radiation facility and identified steps towards improving the FAIRness. Here a little more about our presenters: Dr Markus Kubin has a background in fundamental … Continue reading Assessing the FAIRness of a prototypical PaN instrument at BESSY II

Data Hub Use Cases for ExPaNDS and PaNOSC

Tuesday 16th Nov 2021 from 14:15 → 17:15 Europe/Stockholm Harvesting metadata from experiments requires an understanding of a particular experimental workflow and a deep integration to the control systems of the instruments to create “gluing tools” which can automatically extract relevant meta-data. The other aspect is the integration and use of metadata in downstream processing which can give immediate benefit to users. On the engineering side there is a desire … Continue reading Data Hub Use Cases for ExPaNDS and PaNOSC
