GFF has developed a “Certification Pioneer Program”, whereby we have asked stakeholders and members from the community to assist, as pioneers, in defining the schemas for a number of FAIR-aspects. This pioneer-program has received support from several organizations and has delivered a number of GO FAIR endorsed elements that would assist in increasing the trust-factor and that would avoid watering down of the requirements.
See below the areas currently in progress :
Students ( after examination)
FAIR Data points
FAIR Implementation Profiles ( choices made by a community)
FAIR Metadata Schemas / Templates
Organizations ( Service Suppliers)
Projects ( Data Exchange or Data Visiting projects)
Invited early movers as “training pioneers” are currently : Hogeschool Leiden, Phortos and AllFAIR.
Invited early movers as “metadata pioneers” ( a.o. FDP, FIP, Metadata-schemas / templates ) are the FAIR Data Collective, the Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research / CEDAR , the VODAN Africa project and FAIR Solutions.
