Data FAIRport

Publié le 22 septembre 2014, par Thérèse Hameau


Data FAIRport is an open initiative of representatives from the worlds of research infrastructure and policy, publishing, the semantic web and life sciences research. Data FAIRport was founded in January of 2014. It’s vision is to realise and enable a situation where valuable scientific data is ‘FAIR’ in the sense of being Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable.

Approach Data FAIRport engages all ’Enablers’ in the field of data publishing and re-use. It will not develop any solutions that are already in place and does not dictate a single platform or a particular integrated data infrastructure nor does it aim to develop ‘yet another standard’. Rather it will focus on successful community supported conventions, policies and practices for data identifiers, formats, checklists and vocabularies that enable data interoperability, citation and stewardship. Also a number of concrete ’Exemplars’ will be developed to demonstrate the added value of the Data FAIRport approach.
