The modules of the FAIRification process are grouped into four phases:
The first phase consists of theoretical online modules that answer the essential questions of what FAIR data means and what FAIR initiatives are doing, how to assess your data and set FAIRification goals, introduction to FAIR Cookbook, using and writing recipes.
The second phase is a practical online workshop, which all fellows are expected to attend. During the workshop, participants work in small groups and have the opportunity to consult their project with FAIR Data experts.
In the third phase, the fellows explore interoperability, hosting requirements, and data sharing solutions in different settings. The fellows first assess the interoperability and hosting requirements in their own organizations and then get personalized guidance from the experts of FAIR Data Project to proceed with their project. At the end, each participant will write up the observations and preliminary solutions which are to be presented in the phase four.
Phase four is a group meeting where the participants are to present their FAIRification project results, demonstrate their understanding of FAIR data management and their capability of acting as FAIR data experts.
The participants that have successfully presented their projects and passed the test will receive certificates of completion.
