CODATA is delighted to announce the launch of a major new project: ‘*WorldFAIR:
Global cooperation on FAIR data policy and practice*’, funded by the
European Commission through its Horizon Europe Framework Programme

Coordinated by CODATA <https://codata.org/>, with the Research Data Alliance
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/> association as a major partner, the
WorldFAIR project will work with a set of case studies to advance
implementation of the FAIR data principles, in particular those for
Interoperability, and to develop a set of recommendations and a framework
for FAIR assessment in a set of disciplines, or cross-disciplinary research
areas.  We will explore features of an emerging Cross-Domain
Interoperability Framework
11 case studies from the physical, social, agricultural and environmental
sciences and the cultural heritage sector, and prepare FAIR Implementation
Profiles, appropriately adapted to each (cross-)discipline area. This will
lead to, and help inform, a fuller mapping of current best practices and
emerging solutions and initiatives for FAIR data in these domains.

WorldFAIR will run for 24 months from 1 June 2022. The project is a
collaboration between 19 partners around the world including prominent
research institutions and scholarly organisations from Africa, Australasia,
Europe, and North and South America. This work will form the core of
CODATA’s contribution to the International Science Council (ISC)
<https://council.science/> Action Plan Project 2.1, Making Data Work For
Cross-Domain Grand Challenges
