How FAIR is Research in Europe today?
4 May 2020
The virtual workshop of FAIRsFAIR is currently running. It takes place from April 29 until June 11.
The European FAIRsFAIR project has a synchronization power, especially to establish a dialogue among the various projects and actors in both the EOSC and FAIR ecosystems. The FAIRsFAIR Synchronization Force is organising its second meeting as a series of virtual workshops from April 29 to June 11, 2020. A key challenge for FAIRsFAIR is to ensure that project activities dovetail with work carried out by the Working Groups (WG) of the EOSC Governance, and feed into and complement the work that is being done by other projects in the research data and FAIR space. The recommendations in the 2018 report ‘Turning FAIR into Reality’ form the common thread in the series of virtual workshops: where are we now?
FAIRsFAIR – Fostering Fair Data Practices in Europe – is coordinated by DANS, and aims to supply practical solutions for the use of the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle. Emphasis is on fostering FAIR data culture and the uptake of good practices in making data FAIR. FAIRsFAIR will play a key role in the development of global standards for FAIR certification of repositories and the data within them contributing to those policies and practices that will turn the EOSC programme into a functioning infrastructure.
In the end, FAIRsFAIR will provide a platform for using and implementing the FAIR principles in the day to day work of European research data providers and repositories. FAIRsFAIR will also deliver essential FAIR dimensions of the Rules of Participation (RoP) and regulatory compliance for participation in the EOSC. The EOSC governance structure will use these FAIR aligned RoPs to establish whether components of the infrastructure function in a FAIR manner.
