From November 30 until December 7, GIG team participated in a “FAIR and Open Metadata for Low Carbon Energy Research” (EERAdata) second series of workshops, to which more than 50 participants joined.
The one-week workshop was structured in two framing sessions and in four topical sessions. The main goal was to collaborate on the “Advancing Metadata for Low Carbon Energy Research” community paper. For six work-intensive days, the EERAdata project leader and the leaders of the EERAdata use cases and community platform set up and facilitated sessions with the objective of enriching the discussions aimed at contributing to the paper.
On the second day of the workshop, representatives of GIG Maria Bałazińska, PhD and Mariusz Kruczek, PhD, conducted a session on “EU policies & energy research taxonomies”, during which it was explored the role of ontologies in constructing hierarchical metadata and organizing expert knowledge.

The EERAdata project develops, explores, and tests a FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, re-usable) and open data ecosystem in the low-carbon energy field; funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) is an association of European public research centres and universities active in low-carbon energy research. Bringing together more than 250 organisations from 30 countries, EERA is Europe’s largest energy research community.
