Building on the successful Synchronisation Force workshop 2022, the 2023 edition of the Synchronisation Force workshop aimed to discuss common challenges and priorities related to turning the FAIR principles into practice. The workshop took place as a series of seven virtual sessions between 2 November 2023 and 8 February 2024, with the five core sessions between 27 November and 7 December 2023.

Topic Session 5: Thursday, December 7, 15.00-16.30 CET: Legal & organisational interoperability 

Legal interoperability seems sometimes to have been overshadowed by semantic and technical interoperability in the EOSC interoperability framework.However, legal interoperability is of almost importance for realising the EOSC as a web of FAIR data and related services.  Legal interoperability is about ensuring that organisations operating under different legal or organisational frameworks, policies and strategies are able to work together. This might require that legislation does not block the establishment of European public services within and between Member States and that there are clear agreements about how to deal with differences in legislation across borders, including the option of putting in place new legislation. In this session we picked on the issues of legal interoperability in the perspectives of different scientific domains.
