Working Group Poster  RDA VP19 – Poster EFMI WG on FAIR data


Main Objectives:

The EFMI WG on FAIR data was founded in 2022. It is a place for people interested in the scientific research related to the FAIR principles [1], more specifically:

  • To promote FAIR data in Health Research Performing Organizations (HRPOs) promoting tools, processes (e.g. [2]), and standards to raise awareness and advance education on FAIR in the EFMI community.
  • Develop an HRPO maturity model for the adoption of the FAIR principles that can be adopted as an accreditation model for HRPOs, in line with the RDA FAIR data maturity model [3].
