Since their publication in 2016, the FAIR Data Guiding Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) have become clear and enabling goals to work towards in any work or policies around data. Still, making data furthermore Interoperable and Reusable remains a significant challenge. This AGU / CHORUS Forum will have government, funder, academic institution, and scientific society stakeholders outline why I & R are proving so challenging, and will showcase some of the partial solutions being put into practice. Finally, the audience will be invited to comment on at least one new promising solution.
