Hi all,
I am not able to make the meeting today as I have a conflicting workshop for the EOSC FAIR working group, but I suggest that the question around FAIR in the ‘Writing Sprint’ doc needs to be addressed. I agree FAIR is the goal, but I think we need to recommend very concrete, specific, and simple guidelines so that data is shared in useful ways immediately, and not held back until it’s fully FAIR. I’ve said as much in the document, but wanted to note that I would make this point today if I could join the call!
