FAIRsFAIR and EOSC Nordic synergy

  • By Bert Meerman

Read the attached FAIR Adoption story :  Interesting cooperation and synergy between FAIRsFAIR and the EOSC Nordic FAIRification project, using an automated FAIR evaluator (F-UJI) to measure the FAIRness of the repository's (meta)data. 

In the EOSC Nordic FAIRification project, we defined a sample size of about 100 repositories, for which we made an effort to evaluate the FAIRness of their (meta)data, with the aim to guide and coach the repositories, over time, to a higher level of FAIRness. The guiding and coaching was done via a number of webinars, whereby we selected specific topics that generated a relatively low FAIRness score and where we felt improvements could be achieved.  In this process, we have made a number of  concrete conclusions that could be helpful for similar projects where data sharing and FAIR are relevant.
