Two new reports with recommendations have been released by the FAIR Working Group, on the FAIR metrics for EOSC and on the service certification.
The FAIR metrics report proposes a set of metrics for FAIR data in EOSC, taking the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model indicators as a baseline. The report strongly recommends that the proposed metrics are extensively tested and validated. The definition of metrics should be a continuous process, taking feedback from implementation into account to ensure requirements are inclusive and fit the diversity of research community practice.
