On Thursday 26 November the InfraEOSC-5 FAIR data and infrastructure Task Force organised a special edition of its usual monthly meeting to present to the European Commission the key work being carried out in FAIR data assessment and certification by the InfraEOSC-5 call funded initiatives. These initiatives are EOSC-synergy, EOSC-Pillar, EOSC-Nordic, NI4OS-Europe, ExPaNDS, FAIRsFAIR, and EOSCsecretariat.eu.
The event was co-organised by EOSCsecretariat.eu and FAIRsFAIR and engaged all the InfraEOSC-5 call projects actively involved in the FAIR Task Force. The aim was to provide an overview of the tools created, challenges faced, lessons learned, and recommendations formulated regarding FAIR Assessment and certification of digital objects and data repositories. The meeting also offered a deep-dive into practical use cases that demonstrate the impact of applying the current tools to different communities across Europe, and the priorities for the stakeholders involved.
The associated report contains the information presented and comprehensively documents the challenges, the lessons learned, and the recommendations from the InfraEOSC-5 projects regarding the activities underway in the EOSC region on FAIR data assessment and certification.
