This event will provide a unique forum for advancing international and
cross-domain convergence around FAIR. The two internationally recognized
organisations will convene a global community with an interest in combining
data across domains for a host of research issues – including major global
challenges, such as those relating to the SDGs or the COVID-19 pandemic.
Outcomes will directly inform the CODATA Decadal Programme ‘Making data
work for cross-domain grand challenges’
<https://www.codata.org/strategic-initiatives/decadal-programme> and the GO
FAIR community’s convergence
<https://www.go-fair.org/go-fair-initiative> towards
bottom-up development of the Internet of FAIR data and services globally.

The outcomes will address fundamental issues, such as an improved alignment
with parallel and emerging data initiatives around the world and lessons
learned during the current crisis (virus outbreak) in relation to
international research data sharing and the role of FAIR.

The approach in many sessions will be detailed and technical, resulting in
recommendations, consensus for action and draft implementations.

Participation is open to ALL researchers, data experts, funders, and
science policy

We invite proposals for sessions:
<https://conference.codata.org/FAIRconvergence2020>The deadline for

consensus-building around FAIR are in scope.
