The “FAIR” Principles are an approach to managing data in such a way that ensures it is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable – or FAIR as it is known. This approach has been applied by highly successful businesses, academic researchers and Government agencies as a foundation capability for managing data as a key resource within an enterprise or ecosystem. It enables the data driven business model and the use of data for smart propositions or enhanced business efficiency.
This learning path introduces the concept of FAIR, explaining why it is important, what it is, how it impacts an organisation and how it works for you. This is an essential starting point for everyone who wishes to learn about, use or manage data in a FAIR manner. It provides a 360-degree overview of all the key aspects that are relevant for the creation, usage, management, and implementation of FAIR data.
