WorldFAIR is a coordinated and broad-based effort to explore the realities
of FAIR implementation across a large range of different research domains
and important cross-domain research areas. The FAIR principles rely on
standards to describe data and metadata, and if the promise of FAIR is to
be achieved, these standards must be agreed and adopted both within and
across domains. The methodology used in WorldFAIR employs FAIR
Implementation Profiles (FIPs) and other techniques for understanding what
resources enable FAIR within each of the domain Case Studies in the
project. This input is then considered by a group of standards experts in
light of common standards which can be used universally, cutting across
domain boundaries.

The emerging result is a metadata ‘lingua franca’, designed to support a
number of critical functions in the realisation of FAIR across domains: the
Cross-Domain Interoperability Framework (CDIF). The CDIF is a set of
recommended, existing standards and implementation approaches which builds
on identified domain practice to support key functions, including resource
discovery, access to controlled data, and integration and reuse of data
from disparate sources. Designed to support machine-actionability to the
greatest possible extent, CDIF can be adopted progressively, building on
the FAIR-enabling resources and standards identified by the Case Studies
for their domains.

The coordination and synthesis activity in WorldFAIR (Work Package 2) will
produce a draft of the CDIF recommendations, but will also document other
significant findings from this analysis: how can ‘domain-sensitive’ FAIR
assessment really be carried out in practice? What issues emerge as the
most important for enabling FAIR, both within and across domains, and what
policy measures can be taken to support FAIR implementation into the
future? Ultimately, this impacts the necessary culture around data
management, emphasising the need for more granular data description and
richer metadata describing data provenance and processing.

This webinar describes the methodology developed by WorldFAIR for
performing this analysis, and summarises the findings, in terms of the
initial assessment with FIPs, and covering the work-to-date on the
development of the CDIF recommendations. Emerging policy implications and
impacts on  data management practice are also described.

The program for the webinar is as follows:

WorldFAIR’s use of FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs) (Simon Hodson)

   - What is a FIP?
   - The role of FIPs fit in the WorldFAIR Methodology
   - How WorldFAIR Case Studies have been using FIPs
   - What we learnt? Findings and recommendations

FIPs and the Cross-Domain Implementation Framework (Arofan Gregory)


   - CDIF as a ‘lingua franca’ (what it is, and what it is not)
   - FIPs and CDIF as a basis for domain-sensitive FAIR assessment
   - Publishing FIPs and alignment
