FAIRifying Metabolomics and Phenomics data in the EOSC

Venue: Leiden University (LU); Organiser: LU  Date: 9th – 10th March 2017

Workshop Synopsis:

The 2-day workshop was jointly organised by PhenoMeNal and the GO FAIR initiative and was focussed on establishing a metabolomics and phenomics node as one of the first nodes in the European Open Science Cloud. The programme of the workshop was designed in interaction with Claire o’Donovan (EBI), Chris Steinbeck (Jena), Jake Pierce (Imperial), Philippe Rocca-Serra and Susanna Sansone (UXOF) and Barend Mons (GOFAIR).

As an outcome of the workshop, Professor Karel Luyben, chairman of the GO FAIR initiative, launched one of the very first Implementation Networks in the European Open Science Cloud on Metabolomics data and services. The initiative aims to collectively implement standards compliant with FAIR principles with the wider research community and to actively communicate these. According to the “Declaration of Leiden” signed by all the participants:

This group has set itself the following objectives:

  • Form and develop the open Metabolomics Implementation Network on Metabolomics data and services and we invite others to join
  • Collectively implement standards compliant with FAIR principles with the wider research community and to actively communicate these
  • Work closely together with other communities on better capturing and understanding phenotypes enabling integrated approaches
  • Support the GO FAIR initiative with the widespread implementation of the FAIR principles in the European Open Science Cloud, contributing to a global open internet of FAIR data and services
