This WP will focus on building an international FAIR community, based on partners networks, and will support project participation at external events, as well as events organised by the other FAIRsFAIR work packages. All in all, the WP5 related measurable variables will be tracked through a dedicated, in-house monthly flash report and shared with the consortium.

Moreover, WP5 will collaborate with WP1 to establish and manage two advisory boards: the High Level Advisory Committee (HLAC) and the European Group of FAIR Champions (EGFC). The HLAC will advise the project on its strategic decisions; the members of the EGFC take the roles of ambassadors. WP5 is also responsible for setting up and chairing the pan-project Synchronisation Force. This group provides appropriate visibility to all FAIRsFAIR stakeholders, organises three focused workshops, develops and tracks an effective uptake strategy to facilitate adoption of FAIR. It also ensures synchronisation with other initiatives, projects and EOSC governance.
