Over the last decade making data available for broader re-use by other researchers and disciplines is becoming the norm. Researchers around the globe are confronted with growing research data management requirements imposed by funders and publishers. The majority of these researchers recognize the benefits of good research data management. But there are still issues to be tackled. The sharing and re-use of data, information and knowledge around the globe poses many challenges. According to the European Commissioner Moedas data sharing “…requires a common language as vehicle and carrier, and the “language” is named FAIR.”

In this presentation Ingrid Dillo (DANS) talked about research data management and the concepts of FAIR and TRUST in the context of the social sciences and humanities.
