Project deliverable Open Access
FAIRsFAIR’s analysis of the data policy landscape in 2019 (D3.1 FAIR Policy Landscape Analysis) has shown that the priority and supporting actions outlined in the Turning FAIR into Reality (TFiR) report are being reflected in the policies of funding bodies, publishers/journals and Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) to some extent. However, as crucial components in the FAIR ecosystem, there is still much that needs to be done to foster and harmonise policies to support the aims of the European Open Science Cloud and realise the vision of TFiR. Based on this initial landscape assessment and the work of related initiatives, FAIRsFAIR has prepared a series of practical recommendations for policy enhancement to support the realisation of a FAIR ecosystem. These recommendations are released as a living document that will be refined to reflect the forthcoming work of other projects funded under the INFRAEOSC-05-2018-2019 call and other relevant initiatives.
Public feedback on the draft was open to 31 August 2020. The comments received are being used to help FAIRsFAIR develop practical support for policy makers at different levels to implement the recommendations. This support will be released in 2021-2022.
