FAIRsFAIR Open Call for Data Repositories

  • Creator
  • #73913


    ***apologies for cross posting***
    Would you like to get dedicated support for your data repository to
    contribute to a culture change necessary to achieve wide adoption of
    FAIR practices within the EOSC and beyond?
    The FAIRsFAIR project started to work on practical solutions for the use
    of the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle.
    Emphasis is on fostering FAIR data culture and the uptake of good
    practices in making data FAIR. FAIRsFAIR will play a key role in the
    development of standards for FAIR Certification of repositories and
    their data holdings, contributing to policies and practices that will
    turn the EOSC programme into a functioning infrastructure.
    *Through this Open Call for Participation FAIRsFAIR seeks to support
    data repositories with two different initiatives:*
    1.*Support for data repositories towards achieving CoreTrustSeal
    certification ( )*:
    a financial incentive as well as dedicated support for pre-submission to
    the CoreTrustSeal certification process;
    2.*Support for the “FAIRification” of your repositories *by discussing
    and designing implementation features that enable and increase
    repository interoperability. This will be achieved through building and
    testing prototypes of an interoperability layer for data repositories,
    and will ultimately improve the FAIRness of data in repositories that
    enable FAIR data.
    We welcome repository managers and representatives to apply to one, or
    if applicable to both of the support initiatives below.* Registration
    deadline is Friday, 30th of August 2019.*
    Any questions can be addressed to ***@***.***
