Q&A will be through Mentimeter
Chairs Sarah Jones, DCC and FAIR WG Chair; Françoise Genova, CNRS & EOSC FAIR Working Group Co-chair; Rachael Kotarski, British Library
  • The Working Groups of the EOSC Executive Board are preparing policies and recommendations which should be finalised before the end of 2020. Some of them will be used as the starting point to establish rules for the EOSC. For instance, the FAIR WG is preparing recommendations on frameworks to assess FAIR data and certify services that enable FAIR. We have also developed a  PID Policy and the EOSC Interoperability Framework in collaboration with the Architecture WG.
  • These recommendations, and the usage which will be made of them, have to maintain a balance between rules and inclusiveness, between enforcement and responsiveness, with a level of flexibility to be determined. The diversity of practices and preparedness of the communities in different disciplines is a striking characteristic when the FAIR practices of different fields are assessed.
  • The WG recommendations will have to be considered as a starting point. The workshop objective is to gather community feedback on the future governance framework of EOSC rules related to metrics and PIDs. Who is responsible for maintaining and updating the metrics for FAIR? How do we govern PID infrastructure?
Main target audience
  • Data repository and service providers in EOSC, policymakers, EOSC users
  • Short presentation of the recommendations being prepared by the EOSC FAIR WG as an example of rules which will have to be maintained.
  • Guided discussion on the governance framework of EOSC rules related to FAIR metrics and PIDs.
