*This is not a BoF, it is a proper WG meeting" but I can not submit the proposal for a workshop of the WG since it is not yet formaly stablished.
We have done two previous BoF to test with the community if it did make sense to make a WG: First in P13 (Philadelphia) to test what are the main issues and tools to ask the community about the need of opening/fairifying health Resear data, asking the questions about the main problems, social, technical and cultural barriers to prevent progress on FAIRifying Health research data, as well as the benefits of doing it. Second P14 (Helsinki) about the need of having a WG willing to give HRPO (Health Research Performing Organization) a set of clear and simple guideliness to Stablish an aligned FAIR Data policy at institutional level.
After these two meetings (BoF) the attendance and the promoters agreed upon to create a clear and executive WG to deliver this Guideliness, applicable world-wide. So, we are currently working to have the Case Statement approved, but for the time of Melbourne (P15) meeting the WG will be active and performing their first steps.
So the objectives of the meeting at RDA P15 are clearly stablished:
1- To explain and validate with the audience (hopefully not only EU centric) the case statement.
2- To present the draft of the first approach to the principles and steps to be included in a HRPO policy for FAIR data.
3- To indentify the cultural- regional issues on adopting the principles and steps by different HRPO in the world.
4- To have a first draft for discussion of principles and steps to guide Health Research Performing Organizations to create a policy (internationally valid) for FAIRdata.
5- To involve a broader community to align the proposal of the HRPO policy on FAIR data.
