FAIRsFAIR supports the development of the European Open Science Cloud by supplying practical solutions for the implementation of FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle. This is achieved by fostering FAIR data culture and the uptake of good practices, by developing global standards for the FAIR certification of repositories and the data within them, and through the foundation of a FAIR Competence Centre.
Leading Work Package 5, Engagement, Communication and Uptake, Trust-IT has complete responsibility for the development of communication and dissemination strategy to achieve project goals, and its implementation across an integrated suite of print, online and social media and a full programme of in-person and virtual conferences, workshops, webinars, and other events.
The focus for project activities is a fully responsive website and information portal designed, built and maintained entirely by Trust-IT personnel who also create, produce, and administer a multimedia suite of marketing and promotional materials , and organise and coordinate project meetings and events across Europe.
Trust-IT also plays a leading role in the FAIRsFAIR Synchronisation Force, a pan-project liaison team which oversees collaboration with relevant projects across the EOSC landscape and provides strategic input into the EOSC Executive Board Working Groups ‘Landscape’, ‘FAIR’, ‘Sustainability’, ‘Architecture’, ‘Skills and Training’, and Rules of Participation’. In this regard, Trust-IT together with DANS and CODATA is organising three workshops during the life of the FAIRsFAIR project. The outcome will be a white paper which will directly influence the Rules of Participation and regulatory compliance for participation in the EOSC.
