Defining Fairdata - a suite of services for research data producers and reusers - CSC IT Center for Science

The Finnish Fairdata services initiative dates back to 2012-2014 when the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture initiated and funded an open science initiative called “Data for Research”. This initiative was followed by its successor, the “Open Science and Research Initiative” in 2014-2017, where the guidelines for further service development were defined. The Fairdata services, consists of five separate services, each with their own identified functions and use cases. The underlying idea of the Fairdata service portfolio is to maximize the implementation of the FAIR principles and, as service providers, to support the end users in doing so.
