More and more demand is generated by large funding agencies around the world that researchers publish their data in open-access repositories in a reusable, FAIR way. This is also supported by EU and German federal research agencies as shown by the developments of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), and German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) projects. 

Such a movement requires that the data is annotated with well defined metadata, where the naming convention also follows standards. In order to achieve this, researchers have to be able to access the measured raw data together with any results derived by subsequent data processing. 

The workshop reviews the opportunities provided by the scientific community standard NeXus.

We are happy to invite you for the NFDI NeXus Workshop to discuss the use of the NeXus glossary/ontology, corresponding data format and FAIR Data management in general.
