Discussions around urgent societal challenges such as diversity & inclusion or climate change are often pursued within their domains without the benefit of integrated perspectives that reflect the reality of these challenges. Prompted by the vision of the European Green Deal & New European Bauhaus, this workshop will look at FAIR data integration with an interdisciplinary lens (culture heritage, history, natural sciences, digital humanities). By exploring collaboration between Europeana, DiSSCo & DARIAH, building on the success of Europeana’s network of cultural heritage professionals, policymakers, researchers, this workshop will use a FAIR framework to shed light on data-intensive research practices using cultural & natural heritage resources. Beginning with an overview of the current data landscape (collections as data, digital specimens, EOSC) and challenges related to interdisciplinary research questions (diverging research practices, cross-domain data interoperability), the workshop will facilitate an interactive session to understand the gaps, needs and actions. The vision of such collaboration through FAIR and European Research Infrastructures, will bring different domains together and provide a forum for discovering the opportunities to consolidate and strengthen the impact of our digital heritage data. We intend the workshop to be a vehicle for networking that will generate ideas for future collaboration.
