Final FAIRsFAIR Synchronisation Force workshop series is underway

The third and final Synchronisation Force workshop series was officially kicked off on April 29th with an opening from Ingrid Dillo, deputy director DANS.

The FAIRsFAIR Synchronisation Force has three main objectives:

  1. Maximise coordination & minimise unnecessary overlap or duplication;
  2. Encourage the dovetailing of projects’ and actors’ activities with EOSC governance;
  3. Promote mechanisms to collaborate on turning FAIR into reality.

The workshops of the Synchronisation Force aim to bring together stakeholders from across the EOSC and FAIR ecosystems to discuss common challenges and priorities related to turning the FAIR principles into practice. The input gathered during the sessions are used to track the status of the implementation of the recommendations from the Turning FAIR into Reality (TFiR) report.

Third workshop series

Following the kickoff there are six pillar sessions between the 11th and the 21st of May. These are focused on the six TFiR Pillar recommendations. The series will conclude with a discussion session on June 10th.

After a successful first workshop collocated with the EOSC Symposium 2019 in Budapest, and the highly engaging 2nd workshop series held Spring 2020, this workshop will be the last of its kind and represents a unique opportunity to identify mechanisms for collaboration and harmonisation among EOSC stakeholders to further efforts in enabling the FAIR principles throughout the research lifecycle.   

Contribution DANS

The setup and coordination of the FAIRsFAIR Synchronisation Force is an activity undertaken in collaboration between DANS and Trust-IT Services, supported by CODATA. Marjan Grootveld, Research Data Expert Team Leader at DANS, leads the work on behalf of the project.
