This good practice story focuses on a specific aspect of ‘developing support for FAIR data’: the work at University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland on issuing a digital badge to aid the recognition of skills gained in Responsible Conduct of Research. Badges have been in use  at UCC since 2017. For the specific context of the Responsible Conduct digital badge, it is useful to know that the national research funders demand that researchers receive training in research integrity. The Irish online course Epigeum is the entry level course for research integrity training. The UCC digital badge in the Responsible Conduct of Research, developed in 2019, includes and builds on Epigeum and gives UCC researchers the opportunity to expand on the minimum required training.
