Using the 2018 Turning FAIR into Reality (TFiR) report by the European Commission expert group on FAIR data, the Synchronisation Force workshops organised within the remit of the FAIRsFAIR initiative identified a number of areas for which more activity is recommended.
In this White Paper, the FAIRsFAIR main recommendations are taken a step further and mapped against three priorities identified in the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda of the EOSC (SRIA) and the relevant Task Forces under the EOSC Association, to facilitate their impact and uptake.
This FAIRsFAIR White Paper provides recommendations to the EOSC Partnership and the EOSC Association Task Forces in three areas related to the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) of the EOSC: 1) FAIR by Design, 2) sustainability of the components: the federated data layer, and 3) a strategic and targeted approach to training. Addressing the recommendations will require the involvement of other stakeholders as well, such as research infrastructures, research funders, policy makers and projects, at national and international, domain and cross-domain levels. Recommendations for instruments to synchronise FAIR-related activities conclude this White Paper.
