FAIR coffee lecture, on Wednesday 12 May

On 12 May from 11.00 – 12.00, the Open Science Community and CDDI are organising the third FAIR Coffee Lecture edition at Maastricht University via Zoom.

This edition will feature a presentation by The Digital Ludeme Project. In this project, a playable digital database of the world’s traditional board games throughout human history is built.

You can register for the lecture here.

The database stores evidence for each game documenting where it was known to have been played, and — and far as possible — the equipment and rules with which it was played. This talk will give an overview of the Digital Ludeme Project, how researchers have collected evidence to populate the database, how they have to manage their data, and how they are adopting FAIR principles to increase the usefulness and longevity of the data.

The FAIR principles go hand-in-hand with Open Science to form a great guide to make your research Open and can be (re)-used. With the FAIR Coffee lecture series, the Open Science Community of UM, in collaboration with the Community for Data-Driven Initiatives (CDDI), will help you find out more about these topics and discover how your colleagues have applied Open Science and FAIR principles to their research. These lectures are a perfect chance to dip your toes in the FAIR water and find inspiration in the work of others!

UM is on a mission to become a leading example in the Open Science movement, which aims to make research papers, data, methods open to anyone. Each FAIR Coffee Lecture starts with a short Open Science / FAIR intro, followed by an inspiring lecture from a UM colleague on how they applied FAIR in their work. There will also be a short “caffeine” quiz at the end of the lecture with a chance to win a Bandito Espresso voucher.

The preliminary program is as follows:

  • A quick introduction on FAIR/Open Science and the FAIR Coffee lecture series (15 minutes)
  • Main lecture by Ludeme researchers Matthew Stephenson & Walter Crist: FAIR Play – Building a Database of Historical Games (40 minutes, including discussion/questions)
  • Caffeine quiz (5 minutes)
