I fully agree with the contributions made by Elixir and Go-FAIR colleagues, but do not forget that the domain is biomedicine and health, and in this field there is a large background of specific semantic representation standards for biomedicine and health (Snomed CT, LOINC, ICD, HL7 landscape, etc…).
For information to be actionable in research and epidemiology, it must be FAIR but with semantic interoperability at the highest level.
All the Best.
