At the end of July 2020 FAIRsFAIR and FAIRsharing joined forces to collaborate and interconnect their activities on areas of common interest, aimed to make FAIR Data a reality in Europe, such as common definition on what the FAIR principles imply for data repositories, services, semantic artefacts and other research outputs, and a commonly defined glossary for classification of community standards, amongst others.
RoRI, the Research on Research Institute of Wellcome Trust, seeks partners to work with Wellcome Data Labs and FAIRsFAIR. The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 16 October 2020, while the full proposal submission is by Wednesday 25 November 2020.
The European Commission’s FAIRsFAIR project and the Research on Research Institute (RoRI) will partner on a new initiative to build open source software tools and systems with the potential to transform uptake of the FAIR principles by researchers.
Between 29 April and 11 June 2020 FAIRsFAIR brought together representatives of the Working Groups of the EOSC Executive Board, INFRAEOSC5 projects, ESFRI clusters, and the FAIRsFAIR European Group of FAIR Champions to share information on the progress of their FAIR-oriented activities and to discuss commonalities and priorities. A summary overview of the Second Report of the Synchronisation Force is available for download.
EOSC-hub and FAIRsFAIR have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen their collaboration and contribution to the European Open Science Cloud.
FAIRsFAIR has published its report on the Second Synchronisation Force Workshop.
The FORCE11 Scholarly Communication Institute (FSCI) 2020 online event took place from 3 to 13 August 2020. It was dedicated to researchers, librarians, funders or publishers, aiming to deepen their understanding about the changes taking place across scholarly communication, with also a special focus on FAIR data management & FAIR data stewardship.
Today, 20 July 2020, the EOSC Executive Board has published an open consultation on the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). The consultation, which closes on 31st of August 2020, asks for the input of EOSC communities and beyond in setting out the future vision of the European Open Science Cloud.
FAIRsFAIR has published seveteen minimum viable FAIRsFAIR Data Object Assessment Metrics for the systematic assessment of FAIR data objects. Community feedback on these metrics is urgently sought and can be offered via a dedicated web page which simplifies the process. The closing date for feedback is 31 December.
Input is now sought on the report D4.2 Repository Certification Mechanism: Extended Requirements and Procedures which aligns the characteristics of FAIR digital objects and the repositories that enable FAIRness through the application of the CoreTrustSeal Trustworthy Data Repository Requirements and a capability/maturity evaluation approach.
