The DCC has received the welcome news that funding has been confirmed for the FAIR-IMPACT project, one of a number of actions supported by the European Commission to support FAIR research practice within EOSC. FAIR-IMPACT's focus is on identifying proven methods for making digital research objects more FAIR that have the potential for cross-domain adoption and demonstrating their use and their value. The proposal summarised its objectives by saying:
The DCC is looking for a Strategy and Operations Specialist to join our team as maternity cover.

The DCC's Patricia Herterich and Alex Delipalta put together a guide on planning hybrid events, leveraging their experience planning a hyrbid-turned-virtual RDA Plenary 17 in April 2021.
This guide aims to provide you with a quick overview of the key considerations to make when planning a hybrid event. It aims to help you decide whether a hybrid format suits the type of event you intend to have and, if so, what technical and organisational elements you need to consider to make your event a success.
