Open Science Community Saudi Arabia

In the Incubator, project leader Batool Almarzouq explored the limitations of existing digital infrastructure to adopt FAIR data practice in Arabic-speaking countries. FAIR principles are one of the most important practices in Open Science, but they have limited reach in the Middle East, where open science advocates face unique technical, legal, and cultural challenges. Almarzouq worked to identify the needs of the local community towards recommendations that can drive new policy that fosters a FAIR data culture while maximizing the accessibility and functionality of local data and scientific outputs.
