The Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education has commissioned Oxford Research and Højbjerre Brauer Schultz to carry out a preliminary analysis of the potential for implementing FAIR data in Denmark.

The purpose of the analysis is twofold : to estimate the benefits and costs of implementing FAIR and to examine the barriers and opportunities in implementing FAIR data at the Danish research institutions.


The analysis generally indicates there would be a positive socio-economic value from introducing FAIR data in Denmark in the long run. The analysis also suggests that the size of the benefit will largely depend on how successfully and to what extent FAIR is implemented, and to what extent FAIR data will significantly reduce the amount of time that researchers devote to data work.
