FAIR-IMPACT’s WP4 focuses on several aspects of the lifecycle of FAIR semantics artefacts – a broader term to include ontologies, terminologies, taxonomies, thesauri, vocabularies, metadata schemas and standards – such as governance, creation, sharing, reuse, FAIRness assessment. FAIR-IMPACT’s T6.1 focuses on semantic interoperability for EOSC and how semantic artefacts help to support it.
In the context of the 1st FAIR-IMPACT Synchronisation Force workshop this session was organised to gather different communities to make an inventory of the state of use of semantics artefacts in their scientific domain. The chairs surveyed multiple scientific communities directly involved within FAIR-IMPACT and beyond: agri-food, biodiversity/ecology, biomedicine, photons&neutrons, astronomy, materials, industry, earth sciences, social sciences & humanities.
The session was chaired by Clément Jonquet, INRAE and Oscar Corcho, UPM
Which metadata standards and ontologies are used? Is there a reference semantic artefact catalogue in this area? Is there a governance for semantic artefacts? etc. The session featured short summary presentations of experts in each area and discussion for path of improvement, cross-community fertilisation.
