    Celia,
    This is really interesting. Two questions:
    1) The page explaining membership talks about “people who represent entities and organisations”. Is this the kind of representation that requires a signature? Will what someone says be taken as the voice of their employer?
    2) There is a whole list of “commitments” that members have, but there is no indication of whether this is “all of the below” or ‘any of the below”. For instance, I imagine not all representatives can be expected to “develop standard FAIRification tools”. More concretely: how much time do you expect members to have available for the project?
    Can you please clarify?
    Rob

    Dear Rob,
    Thank you for your mail and your interest in the FAIR4Health Open Community.
    I try to solve your questions.
    1. About the membership, the objective is to establish synergies and
    collaborations with similar initiatives dealing with FAIR data in the
    health domain. That is why we commented that the members will be
    researchers representing their projects and organizations.
    2. Regarding the ‘commitments’, we hope that the FAIR4Health community
    will have a great lifespan more to do with the FAIR4Health project. Even
    so, for your information I add that the FAIR4Health project will end at
    the end of 2021.
    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards.
