HMC Conference

Join our road to FAIR

Together we can turn FAIR into reality - join us and your (meta)data community

Data are produced in huge quantities within research activities. This frequently involves unique data sets that take considerable time and effort to prepare. For this to work optimally, researchers must be able to find the data reliably, regardless of when or from which location. We prepare our data in such a way that scientists from a wide range of disciplines can easily identify them. Metadata are the central tool for this: They enrich research data with standardized and machine-readable information. In this way, study results can still be found years later, and third parties can also make good use of them.

With the HMC Conference, which took place for the first time in October 2022, HMC offers a platform where everyone interested can get an update on the latest developments in this field. The annually, virtual conference offers the opportunity to exchange ideas about solutions for generating high-quality metadata, technical solutions and applications, learn about practical application examples from various research areas, get an update on the latest developments within HMC, and to network and exchange ideas with the Helmholtz metadata community and beyond.

The next HMC conference will take place in November 2024. We’ll provide more details on our website soon.
