The FAIRsFAIR legacy

Built on the successful Synchronisation Force series from the FAIRsFAIR project, FAIR-IMPACT will establish dialogue for collaboration and harmonisation with various projects, initiatives and actors in both EOSC and FAIR ecosystems to reduce redundancy and ensure that solutions are more widely promoted, sustainable and can be transferred to the relevant EOSC Partnership and current and future EOSC stakeholders.


The history of the FAIRsFAIR Synchronisation force

First Synchronisation Force Workshop - Budapest, Hungary 25 November 2019

The objective of the workshop was to open the dialogue between Synchronisation Force members and relevant stakeholders and agree on shared priorities.

Key Recommendations

  • Create a system of information sharing between projects
  • Table policy recommendations regarding acknowledgement and citation within the framework of data reuse
  • Synchronise survey design across projects and share results and analysis
  • Share the FAIRsFAIR work on Terminology for FAIR developed as part of activities on FAIR Semantics
  • Integrate the work of the FAIR WG on PIDs into the wider PID-related work of FAIRsFAIR
  • Foster engagement with the ESFRI cluster projects
