In April 2024, the Cloud Competency Centre at National College of Ireland proudly contributed to the prestigious Nature Portfolio. This innovative research, led by Dr González-Cebrián, in collaboration with Professors Michael Bradford, Adriana E. Chis, and Horacio González-Vélez, introduces a novel framework for the standardised versioning of datasets. This framework not only enhances the reusability and recognition of datasets but also ensures their seamless integration into various workflows, aligning perfectly with the FAIR principles of Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability.
