The International Data Week (IDW) 2018 is hosted in Gaborone, Botswana (5-8 November, 2018) by the Botswana Open Science and Open Data Forum, bringing together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers and data stewards from all disciplines and geographies across the globe. In connection with the IDW 2018, the Enabling FAIR Data Project is celebrating and promoting its Commitment Statement in the international earth, space, and environmental sciences community. You can support the #FAIRData movement by signing up to the Commitment Statement: as an individual, repository, publisher, community, society, institution or funder. “FAIR” is defined as Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable as defined by the FAIR Guiding Principles.
