Great initiative and award but just for ‘the best FAIR data in Norwegian life science of 2021’ That sets limits – would be great to have an award for all kind of data in the future. But it is not easy to define and access FAIRness in detail. Many tools focus on the metadata only e.g. f-uji while other data depends on interoperability on the data level. So it would be comparing apples to oranges since it is possible and needed for some data but not all data.Best,Benjamin
