FAIR data principles

FAIR data principles is a minimum set of principles agreed on by multiple set of stakeholders 2014 in the Netherlands under the umbrella of Force11. FAIR stands for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable and is a general guide to FAIRness of data. The principles were formed due to a recognized need of supporting and facilitating data sharing, discoverability, storage and use. For the researcher, the most important thing is to have systematic data management throughout the research process.

CSC is supporting the FAIR principles in the development of data management services. The FAIR principles describe the practices and criterion to be set on tools, infrastructure and resources in order to achieve ‘FAIR' data management.
