Skills4EOSC Minimum Viable Skills Profiles: Implementation using FAIR Signposting

The "Minimum Viable Skills Profiles: Implementation using FAIR Signposting"  will take place on 2nd July 2024 from 15:00-16:00 CEST. Registration for the workshop is free but mandatory.

The Catalogue of Minimum Viable Skillset (MVS) Profiles describes key skills and competences for roles that enable researchers, professionals, and stakeholders to practice Open Science (OS) with the support of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). Each MVS Profile relates the essential skills to the Open Science (OS) practices, activities, and outcomes that may typically be expected of the role concerned.

One of the ways to ensure increased FAIRness of the MVS Catalogue has been to follow the recommendations on implementing FAIR Signposting, a lightweight yet powerful approach to increase the FAIRness of scholarly objects. The main idea of the approach is to optimise the MVS Catalogue landing page for use by machine agents that navigate the scholarly web and describe the metadata related to the profiles in a standards-based way. In this way machines learn about the persistent identifier of the MVS Catalogue, where and what its content is, where metadata that describes it is, etc.

This webinar aims to provide an overview of the Catalogue of MVS profiles developed within Skills4EOSC, and how the project implemented the FAIR Signposting approach developed by FAIR IMPACT so that they can be more easily read and understood by automated agents. The workshop is a great venue to discuss and think about how one can take a similar approach to take advantage of the MVS profiles and/or describe and make available other types of work and materials. This event is organised in conjunction with the Skills4EOSC project.
