Dear members of the RDA/WDS Certification of Digital Repositories WG,
This time I am writing on behalf of the H2020 funded FAIRsFAIR project "Fostering FAIR Data Practices In Europe". The project is working to offer practical solutions for implementing FAIR data principles across data repositories all around Europe, with a focus on fostering a FAIR data culture and promoting good practices. FAIRsFAIR will also support implementation of the Rules of Participation (RoP) and regulatory compliance that organisations need to participate in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), helping to progress from pilots to a functioning infrastructure.
In order to meet these objectives and building upon the findings of recent studies, we now seek input from a wide range of organisations already helping to make data FAIR. We invite contributions to two surveys - one focusing on policies and practices, and the other more focused on semantics and interoperability. We welcome individual contributions to either or both surveys and encourage multiple responses from an organisation, reflecting different views and areas of expertise.
The consultation period runs until September 20th, 2019. To take part, please visit https://www.fairsfair.eu/fairsfair-open-consultation-fair-data-policies-and-practices and select the survey you are best able to contribute to.
We greatly appreciate your time and will make the resulting anonymised data widely available for reuse.
All the best,
