FAIR Data Maturity Model: core criteria to assess the implementation level of the FAIR data principles

The RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model Working Group develops as an RDA Recommendation a common set of core assessment criteria for FAIRness and a generic and expandable self-assessment model for measuring the maturity level of a dataset. The aim is not to develop yet another FAIR assessment approach but to build on existing initiatives, looking at common elements and allowing the group to identify core elements for the evaluation of FAIRness. That will increase the coherence and interoperability of existing or emerging FAIR assessment frameworks and it will ensure the combination and compatibility of their results in a meaningful way.

 

The WG brings together stakeholders from different scientific and research disciplines, the industry and public sector, who are active and/or interested in the FAIR data principles and in particular in assessment criteria and methodologies for evaluating their real-life uptake and implementation level.

presented in workshop #6. Based on this and the discussions that will stem
from these early evaluations, the editorial team will propose a concrete

FAIR principles.
The work started with a landscaping exercise

approaches to find out which kinds of aspects these approaches were
evaluating. The results of the landscaping exercise were discussed by the

a survey with the aim to propose a final set of priorities at our next
workshop. We already thank those of you who responded, we certainly can see
that some trends are emerging.
Yet, as we seek to have priorities to be accepted by the largest number of
people and communities, we encourage those of you who did not respond yet
