Advice on aligning policies with the FAIR Principles


Based on an initial landscape assessment and the work of related initiatives, FAIRsFAIR has prepared a series of recommendations for policy enhancement (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3686900) to support the realisation of a FAIR ecosystem. We invited expressions of interest from policy makers at all levels to work with us to assess their current policies against these recommendations and to consider how the policies might be adapted to better support the emergence of a FAIR ecosystem. We aimed to work with up to 25 policy makers over the course of 2021 and made our selection to ensure there is representation reflecting the various stakeholders (national, funding body, organisational, research infrastructure), stages of development, and geographic coverage. The open call for support closed on 5 February 2021

Who are we working with? 


We are working with 20 policy makers representing various stakeholders groups and stages of policy development. Among the participants: 

  • 14 are research performing organisations (HEIs, research infrastructures)
  • 3 are funding bodies
  • 3 are national level initiatives

Among these participants:

  • 10 participants in the cohort already have policies in place
  • 2 participants in the cohort have draft policies being developed
  • 5 participants are at the early stages of policy planning and development
  • 3 participants represent umbrella organisations and are keen to reuse the support outputs with their own communities


Any questions can be addressed to opencall@fairsfair.eu.
