Building on the successful Synchronisation Force workshop 2022, the 2023 edition of the Synchronisation Force workshop aimed to discuss common challenges and priorities related to turning the FAIR principles into practice. The workshop took place as a series of seven virtual sessions between 2 November 2023 and 8 February 2024, with the five core sessions between 27 November and 7 December 2023.

Topic Session 2: Tuesday, November 28, 10.30-12.00 CET: Metadata, semantics and interoperability

Interoperability is one of the FAIR Principles that recently has taken up more and more attention. Interoperability will often be the more challenging one of the four principles - indeed when we want to address interoperability across scientific domains. In this session we explored the subject of semantic and technical interoperability within and across scientific domains. The aim of the workshop was to explore the semantic and technical interoperability adopted by representatives from different research communities and institutions to explore their compliance with the EOSC Interoperability Framework’s recommendations. We expected participation from different scientific domains in order to get a picture of their semantic and technical practices. Our point of departure for addressing semantic and technical interoperability was the EOSC interoperability framework.
