BioDT at the International FAIR Digital Objects Implementation Summit

The International FAIR Digital Objects Implementation Summit will be held on March 20th and 21st, 2024, in Berlin, Germany, at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science. This summit, hosted by the FDO Forum, follows a training day on March 19th and focuses on practical implementations of the FAIR Digital Object (FDO) concept.

What is a FAIR Digital Object?

A FAIR Digital Object (FDO) is a data format designed to be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. The FDO Forum aims to establish a neutral space for researchers, policymakers, and technologists to collaborate on FDOs. This collaboration will lead to a more coherent approach to FDO-based designs and implementations, ultimately creating a more interoperable and reliable digital research environment.

BioDT at the FDO Forum

Julian Lopez Gordillo from Naturalis, a BioDT project partner, will be giving a presentation titled "FDO as an Interoperability Framework for the Biodiversity Digital Twin Project on March 20th. This presentation, which has an accompanying conference paper of the same titled and co-authored by Sharif Islam, discusses BioDT's efforts to implement the FDO framework.

Additionally, Jonas Grieb from Senckenberg will present BioDT's mapping service, a tool to support the curation of FAIR semantic mappings that makes also use of FDOs in the backend. The presentation and accompanying conference paper are co-authored by further BioDT partners from Senckenberg and Naturalis.
