Hellström, Margareta

This workshop was provided within Task 2.4 concerning the completeness of the Assessment framework for data services. Through this first FAIR enabling services workshop, FAIRsFAIR provides a platform to engage with the community and receive feedback on the assessment framework first iteration presented during the FAIRsFAIR webinar. Participants to this workshop were providers of data services and other interested stakeholders - across the full range of scientific disciplines. During the workshop, the six key aspects of the framework were discussed and analyzed to identify gaps and formulate improvements. Feedback received will be incorporated into a further iteration  of the report to be published later in 2021.

Why a FAIR Assessment Framework for Data Services?

The FAIR assessment framework for data services aims to assist service providers to ensure their data services are ‘FAIR enabling’ and optimally support the FAIRification process. This is important because realising the full potential of a FAIR ecosystem - in which research outputs can be easily shared and optimally reused - requires looking beyond the FAIRification of data and other digital objects to also consider the infrastructure and services that act on those objects.
