Want research in Europe to be more FAIR? Your views count! Please complete one or both of our surveys! FAIRsFAIR Open Consultation is open until September 20, 2019

 

FAIRsFAIR is looking to assess the skills, practices, services and policies required to make  research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. 

HELP US IDENTIFY GOOD PRACTICE AND MIND THE GAPS!

 

If you support research data management or provide related services we’d like to hear from you. Your opinions will inform decision-making around FAIR governance in the European Science Cloud and we’ll help you implement them in your organisation.

There are two surveys available and each requires around 15-20 minutes of your time. Feel free to complete either or both!



SURVEY 1: FAIR POLICIES AND PRACTICES

The purpose of this survey is to assess:

  • The different levels of maturity with regards to FAIR practices among disciplines.
  • The range of policies that influence the way that researchers work.
  • The sources of support currently available to researchers.

We seek input from a wide range of research support roles including repository managers, research data managers, policy makers, service providers, and data stewards. 


SURVEY 2: SEMANTICS AND INTEROPERABILITY

This survey is targeted at those in technical service support roles such as data scientists, data stewards, architects, and developers. We’d like to know which formats, semantic artefacts, identifiers and software practices you see in the scientific community you work with. 



A survey specifically aimed at the state of FAIR data at universities and higher education institutions will be launched by the European Universities Association (EUA) as part of the FAIRsFAIR project in September 2019. This survey will focus on the availability and emergence of educational programmes relating to the FAIR principles. 

The anonymised survey data will be made available from a trusted repository for reuse and the links will also be provided here. FAIRsFAIR has been working in cooperation with several related initiatives including the EOSC 5B projects, the Group of European Data Experts in RDA (GEDE) the EOSC FAIR Working Group to avoid duplication of effort in our information collection. 


Thank you for your time!  The deadline is Friday, 20th of September 2019.  If you could pass this link on to a colleague we’d be most appreciative!
