How Europe can make FAIR data a reality: An Action Plan

This talk will address the process and outputs of the European Commission’s Expert Group on FAIR-data implementation, which builds on the FAIR principles first articulated via Force11 (https://www.force11.org/fairprinciples). It will pay particular attention to how the report that emerged from the EC group’s work was built on consultation and engagement across geographies, sectors and domains. Significantly, the report takes a holistic, systemic approach and provides a comprehensive action plan engaging a wide range of stakeholders. The presentation will address therefore how the action plan highlights the importance of engaging with disciplinary actors, member states and their networks, as well as the fundamental role of direct researcher engagement relating to the potential for FAIR-data uptake. It will also point to how researchers and data stewards can draw on well developed disciplinary practices to engage across disciplinary boundaries. Format-wise, the presentation will use sli.do or similar to poll attendees on recommended actions and best stakeholder groups to target for successful implementation, and may solicit comparisons across geographies or sectors. The intention is to keep the audience actively involved throughout the presentation, instead of leaving the interaction to the end.
