RO-Crate: A framework for packaging research products into FAIR Research Objects

O-Crate is a community effort to establish a lightweight approach to packaging research products (data, scripts, methods and so on) together and with their metadata.
At its heart RO-Crate is a practical way to aggregate files and/or any URI-addressable content, with contextual information to aid decisions about re-use. It uses off the shelf and developer familiar web technologies that make it machine and human readable and search engine friendly. This small step is a springboard to Digital Object exchange, access, preservation and reproducibility.
We will briefly present the motivation and approach of RO-Crate and give examples from cultural heritage and biosciences.
We will also present our preliminary investigations in using RO-Crate as a means of implementing FAIR Digital Objects as defined by the FDOF for the Natural History Digital Specimen Objects in the EU Synthesys+ project for the DISSCo ESFRI of Natural History digital collections.
Collaborative notes:
We are looking forward to the presentation and the discussions.
