Seven recommendations for implementation of FAIR practice - Draft for consultation

  • By Federico Drago

How to move from FAIR principles to FAIR practice? During the past year, the FAIR practice task force under the umbrella of the EOSC FAIR Working Group has been gathering its understanding of the current state of FAIR practices across diverse communities, and making recommendations aimed primarily at research funders and policymakers on how to ensure that “FAIR” provides maximum value in the European Open Science Cloud.

The result has been captured in a Draft "Seven Recommendations for Implementation of FAIR Practice", which we open for consultation with a webinar on 9 July and for which we request your input until August 31, at which point it will be prepared for formal delivery to the EOSC governance.
