Data-driven science is generating biological data at unprecedented rates. To make the information sequestered in the accumulating data accessible to the community, and to represent it such that it can be translated to knowledge, requires the development of rigorous data-stewardship practices and deployment of training. Data science is an emerging field, and training programmes are just being established. Best practices in data curation and in data-science training need to be established.
This is the group of people that care for standards in training and for training!
To create awareness and apply standards across bioinformatics training and foster best practices in relevant fields such as biocuration, data-sciences and academic software production.

_Here you can view our rolling agenda, actions and notes from our regular monthly committee meetings https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ypKIirWXwEQHLs_y7VT6le73_hDEY5xpaR4N...
_Niall Beard from TeSS (ELIXIR-UK) presented TeSS https://tess.elixir-europe.org/ and Bioschemas http://bioschemas.org/index.html, as well as discussed the existing Training medatata standards which this Committee will be reviewing.
-The Committee has presented a poster on the Biocuration 2017 conference: https://f1000research.com/posters/6-327
-EMBL-ABR/GOBLET/Biosharing are collecting standards awareness and adoption across biosciences, please complete and share this survey with your communities: http://bit.ly/2mSeMN3
-Set up the Goblet Standards Pool of Experts http://www.mygoblet.org/content/standards-pool-experts
• Implement minimum training material descriptors recommended by the Standards Committee
- ensure Bioschemas compliance
• Explore development of a registry of community standards, and tools for standards development
• Map which bioinformatics standards are currently taught worldwide
• Capture standards related training needs
• Engage with the International Society for Biocuration and Biocuration 2017
- consider joint activity
- follow up 2016 workshop outcomes
• Engage with Biocuration 2018
