An Open, Community-based Data Commons: LOI for NIH Data Commons Pilot

09 Jul 2017

Dear Legal Interop colleagues,
The following proposal from the NIH data community appears to have some possible points of intersections with our group's work: is legal interoperability a core element of FAIR data?
My sense is "absolutely yes"! That is another meaning of the "I" the acronym. How to weave that perspective into the FAIR discussions at CODATA/RDA?

    Dear Gail,
    Thanks for this. I think legal interoperability is clearly a part of FAIR and so we should engage with these groups.
    I would also like to draw colleagues attention to the work of the European Commission’s Expert Group on FAIR data, which I chair and which will be holding the second of two community sessions on 26 July:
    With very best wishes,
    CODATA 2017 International Conference, ‘Global Challenges and Data-Driven Research’, Saint-Petersburg, 8-13 October, submit proposals for sessions and papers, deadline 28 July:
