What are the FAIR principles – watch the new video!

The FAIR data principles were published in 2016 by Force11. The Academy of Finland also mentions the FAIR principles as a good data management guideline. According to the FAIR principles, the data should be:

  • Findable
  • Accessible
  • Interoperable
  • Re-usable

The Council of the European Union emphasises that “the opportunities for the optimal reuse of research data can only be realised if data are consistent with the FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable) within a secure and trustworthy environment” (Council conclusions on the transition towards an open science system)

But what does this mean? Watch our new video above to see what the FAIR principles mean in practice.
