EOSC-Life ‘FAIR Enough’ Meeting in Brussels


ECRIN co-organised the 'FAIR Enough' meeting in Brussels from 4 - 5 September 2019 as part of the EOSC-Life project. The goal was to align partner strategies and project initiatives regarding FAIR data and related issues.

In preparation for the launch of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), several initiatives and projects have been funded to contribute to the implementation phases and to address several aspects of the EOSC, such as governance, design of services, rules of participation, etc.

FAIR data

FAIR data is a crucial element of EOSC and recommendations for the implementation of FAIR data principles have been recently published. However, clear policies are still needed for the management (storage, processing, access, sharing and reuse) of sensitive data, in particular health and personal data.

Workshop objective

The objective of the workshop was to bring together the main ongoing projects tackling FAIR data and data protection issues to have an overview of their respective objectives and achievements, and to identify potential gaps and synergies to outline a common strategy for the development of guidance and services to handle sensitive research data.

Participants

Representatives were present from EOSC-Hub, EOSC-Life, FAIR4HEALTH, FAIRPlus, FAIRsFAIR, and GoFAIR, as well as other EOSC-Life project partners.
