https://realising-eosc.eosc-hub.euFrom 16 to 19 November 2020 FAIRsFAIR will have a booth at the first ever virtual EOSC Projects EXPO inside the EOSC-hub, FREYA, SSHOC joint event "Realising the European Open Science Cloud".
Developed by the FAIRsFAIR work team responsible for the establishment of certification mechanisms for the identification of trustworthy data repositories, the metrics are based on indicators proposed by the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group. Feedback is open until December 2020.
FAIRsFAIR has taken up the challenge to define systematic measurements of data FAIRness and has used the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Specification and Guidelines Recommendation of the FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group to do so.
FAIRsFAIR has published its 2nd Report on FAIR requirements for persistence and interoperability. One of three in a series, the report builds on the landscaping effort published in March 2020 and serves as an explanatory guide to the use of PIDs, metadata, and semantic interoperability.
FAIRsFAIR has launched F-UJI, an online FAIRness assessment of published research datasets. The tool is based on 14 out of 15 core FAIR object assessment metrics developed within the project.
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.
