FAIRmat Hands-on Tutorial Series
TUTORIAL 2: ELECTRONIC LAB NOTEBOOKS AND FAIR DATA MANAGEMENT
18:00 CET - End of the 1st day
12:00 & 18:00 CET- End of the 2nd day
Tutorial Chair: Sandor Brockhauser
This tutorial is reviewing the need of using electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) in materials science research labs, synthesis, and experimental characterisation facilities. A special emphasis is put on efficiently collecting all metadata and performing FAIR data management which not only facilitates organising the work better and making the processes in the lab more performant but also guarantees the possibility of data reuse via offering machine readability and machine interpretability.
The tutorial is also addressing the questions: Which kind of choices are available and how to set up such ELN system for a laboratory? A demonstration of such a lab setup will also be provided on the first day.
On the second day, three more presentations will guide you through the details of implementing such a setup for your own lab. For this purpose, we have chosen relevant, but simple use cases which can help you in mapping our strategies and solutions onto your institute.
