This handbook aims to support higher education institutions with the integration of FAIR-related content in their curricula and teaching.  It was written and edited by a group of about 40 collaborators in a series of six book sprint events that took place between 1 and 10 June 2021. The document provides practical material, such as competence profiles, learning outcomes and lesson plans, and supporting information. It incorporates community feedback received during the public consultation which ran from 27 July to 12 September 2021.

A print version as well as an Open Access PDF version (most up-to-date version) were published by Göttingen University Press in May 2022. Both are available via:
