The FAIRsFAIR Project is launching an Open Call for Data Repositories, to achieve the CoreTrustSeal certification and support "FAIRification" on repositories. Deadline 30 August 2019.


Would you like to get dedicated support for your data repository to contribute to a culture change necessary to achieve wide adoption of FAIR practices within the EOSC and beyond?


The FAIRsFAIR project started to work on practical solutions for the use of the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle. Emphasis is on fostering FAIR data culture and the uptake of good practices in making data FAIR. FAIRsFAIR will play a key role in the development of standards for FAIR Certification of repositories and their data holdings, contributing to policies and practices that will turn the EOSC programme into a functioning infrastructure.

Through this Open Call for Participation FAIRsFAIR seeks to support data repositories with two different initiatives:

  1. Support for data repositories towards achieving CoreTrustSeal certification ( a financial incentive as well as dedicated support for pre-submission to the CoreTrustSeal certification process;
  2. Support for the “FAIRification” of your repositories by discussing and designing implementation features that enable and increase repository interoperability. This will be achieved through building and testing prototypes of an interoperability layer for data repositories, and will ultimately improve the FAIRness of data in repositories that enable FAIR data.

We welcome repository managers and representatives to apply to one, or if applicable to both of the support initiatives below. Registration deadline is Friday, 30th of August 2019.
