The European Commission Expert Group on « Turning FAIR Data into reality » developed a FAIR Data Action Plan. It is intended to act as a rubric for Member States and research communities to develop context-specific plans on how to implement FAIR data in their countries and/or research areas.
The group identified 4 steps with several recommendations for each step:
- Step 1: Define and apply FAIR appropriately ;
- Step 2: Develop and support a sustainable FAIR data ecosystem ;
- Step 3: Ensure FAIR data and certified services to support FAIR ;
- Step 4: Embed a culture of FAIR in research practice.
