  • The Awareness path provides details on all aspects of the FAIR Principles and Linked Data technology. This is relevant for those who wish to gain a solid understanding of the FAIR Guiding principles, their impact and benefits, application workflows, and the role of Data Stewardship.
  • The Stewardship path equips you with detailed information on the organisational implications, available tools, and prerequisites to embed the role of FAIR Data Stewards in an organisation. This learning path enables you to plan, prepare and execute the necessary steps on the roadmap to FAIR Data and Services.

Linked Data

  • The Essentials path is an ideal starting point for anyone to learn about Linked Data and the concept of a Resource description Framework (RDF)
  • The Foundations learning path is relevant for analysts, engineers, architects and others with an interest in experiencing hands-on what working with RDF is like. It lays the foundation for more advanced courses on SPARQL, SHACL and combining Linked Data and geospatial data.
  • The Conceptual Modelling UFO Basics learning path is relevant for data analysts, information analysts, information architects, ontologists, and any other professional who needs to work with ontologies, design ontologies, or need to understand the quality aspects of ontologies. After finishing this course, you will be able to apply basic UFO-techniques in all your modeling work.

Step 2: Choose how you wish to follow your learning path and buy the preferred option: eLearning, Webinar or Classroom

Choose how you wish to follow your preferred learning path: using the eLearning only; combine eLearning with live participation in a scheduled webinar(s); or combine the eLearning with classroom session(s).

The webinar and classroom options include the eLearning, just select your preferred date from the schedule shown during the purchase process after clicking on the relevant product. The course structure and content is identical for the eLearning, webinar and classroom variants.
