Metrics for automated FAIR software assessment in a disciplinary context. FAIR-IMPACT result released
FAIR-IMPACT published 17 metrics that can be used to assess research software against the FAIR Principles for Research Software (FAIR4RS Principles), as well as providing examples of how these might be implemented in one exemplar disciplinary context of the social sciences in CESSDA.
The Value of Data (and Digital Object) Management Plans in Fostering Sharing Practices in multidisciplinary projects: two papers on Data Science Journal
Two practice papers were recently published by the Data Science Journal and co-authored by EOSC FAIR Champion Romain David around the importance of DMP in sharing research best practices.
Our first open call for FAIR support was launched on March 31st and provided two defined support actions that the community could apply to join. The first is a FAIRness assessment challenge and the second focuses on enabling FAIR Signposting and RO-Crate for content/metadata discovery and consumption. A total of 51 applications were received, and 31 were successfully evaluated.
F-UJI, the automated assessment tool developed in the framework of the FAIRsFAIR project, was recently featured in an article by a group of researchers in agriculture, published in the Ecological Informatics, Volume 76, by Elsevier.
Apples to apples and community-driven governance of FAIRness assessment: FAIR-IMPACT responses to EOSC FAIR Task Force papers
At the end of 2022, two groups of the EOSC Association Task Force on FAIR Metrics and Data Quality published two reports. The team working on metrics, certification and guidelines appreciated the opportunity to respond to both documents to detail the project views and intended contributions.
FAIR-IMPACT has just launched the first of three Open Calls for Support, offering two defined support actions designed to enhance the FAIRness of data, semantic artefacts and data-related services. Applications will be accepted until 1 June 2023.
The FAIR-IMPACT Synchronisation Force 2022 workshop run between the 21st November and 12th December 2022. More than 120 people registered for the series of 6 online sessions. Based on the workshop input and discussions, this report provides supporting recommendations for each of the FAIR related topics discussed.
York Sure-Vetter, professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Director of NFDI, the German National Research Data Infrastructure, and Michelle Barker, Director of the Research Software Alliance (ReSA), were appointed chair and co-chair of the FAIR-IMPACT High Level Advisory Committee.
The proceedings of the FAIR-IMPACT Synchronisation Force 2022 online sessions are now available. From the event page you can download the slides presented during the sessions and the data gathered via the preliminary survey run before the event, which constituted the starting point for the discussions during the Synchronisation Force Workshop
The European Research Data Landscape study looks at researchers’ practices in producing, reusing and depositing data, and in making it FAIR, as well as examining the research data repository landscape. It was commissioned by the European Commission and FAIR-IMPACT partners DANS and DCC contributed to it
Putting FAIR into practice to support the EOSC vision: FAIR-IMPACT & FAIRCORE4EOSC featured into GÉANT’s CONNECT 41 issue!
FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT started to work together in supporting the realisation of a web of FAIR data and services by delivering new core infrastructure components as well as by supporting the implementation of FAIR-enabling practices, tools, and services. Their contribution is featured in the recent issue n. 41 of the CONNECT Magazine published by GÉANT.
A new group of Horizon Europe projects takes on the challenge of implementing - and communicating - the European Open Science Cloud, through coordinated branding and enhanced collaboration
The working paper “Towards a European network of FAIR-enabling Trustworthy Digital Repositories (TDRs)” is the initiative of a broad author team consisting of stakeholders from the European repository community. It details a vision of how the Network could be created and what next steps need to be taken to make this a reality.
This call for proposals belongs to a series of ‘RDA open calls’ supporting a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) that satisfies the FAIR data and resource management needs of Europe’s research communities. Applications are open until 15 September 2022, 16.00 CEST, via the EOSC Future Grants Platform.
Launched on 11 July, a new call will support a network of experts in integrating their disciplinary know-how and community achievements within EOSC. Applicants can submit their proposal until 15 September 2022, 16.00 CET via the EOSC Future Grants Platform. Call closes: 15 September 2022, 16.00 CET
This June 2022, two European Horizon projects kicked off in Amsterdam, FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT. Both projects will contribute to the implementation of the FAIR principles across EOSC in close collaboration with other actors in the EOSC ecosystem.
On June 17th Ingrid Dillo, Deputy Director, DANS, co-chair of Council Research Data Alliance and Coordinator of the FAIR-IMPACT project joined the AGU / CHORUS Forum on making FAIR’s Interoperability and Reusability Data Goals Possible.
The recently awarded FAIR-IMPACT project will identify and design practical solutions, guidelines and frameworks to realise an EOSC of FAIR data and services. The project started on 1st of June and on 27 and 28 of June will gather 28 partners from 11 countries for the kick-off.
