CHORUS Forum: Making FAIR’s Interoperability and Reusability Data Goals Possible
17 June 2022 @ 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT – Free online meeting
Since their publication in 2016, the FAIR Data Guiding Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) have become clear and enabling goals to work towards in any work or policies around data. As metrics have been developed around them, FAIR has become a set of tangible targets for funders, publishers, institutions and researchers to aim at and to be measured against. Unsurprisingly, considerable work has gone into practically enabling all to achieve these. For many (not all) it has become reasonable to expect data to be published in a manner that results in it being both Findable and Accessible.
However, making these data furthermore Interoperable and Reusable remains a significant challenge. This AGU / CHORUS Forum will have government, funder, academic institution, and scientific society stakeholders outline why I & R are proving so challenging, and will showcase some of the partial solutions being put into practice. Finally, the audience will be invited to comment on at least one new promising solution.
