FAIRsharing grows roots into Oxford research support

FAIRsharing is pleased to announce stronger ties to University of Oxford’s research support expertise and teams, in the form of four new Community Champions. This collaboration will result in greater connectivity for FAIRsharing’s registry and educational provision within Oxford’s Research Practice Programme and Community. Our new FAIRsharing Champions have a strong background, and leadership roles, in Research Support and Research Data Management.
