We all know what it means to be FAIR, but where are we at in terms of implementation? This paper will review a number of recent reports and initiatives to make reflections on the current status of FAIR data across different research communities in Europe. Key concepts and recommendations will also be highlighted from the European Commission’s FAIR Data Expert Group report on what is needed to turn FAIR data into reality, proposing next steps for action in Denmark and beyond.

10:40 – 11:00 The political focus on FAIR in Denmark - Troels Rasmussen, Special Advisor, Ministry of Higher Education and Science

Afternoon session: FAIR data across disciplines: how far are we and how far can we go?

13:10 – 13:15 Introduction to the session and the cases in FAIR Across– Karsten Kryger, AAU University Library

13:15 – 13:35Case 1: FAIR data in Wind Energy research – Nikola Vasiljevic (DTU Wind Energy) & Falco Hüser (DTU Library)

The Wind Energy Department at DTU has prepared a strategy to implement the FAIR principles across all their research activities, starting with an assessment of current practices, the collection of existing data types and tools and the assignment of FAIR data ambassadors. With help from DTU Library, they have a drafted policies and guidelines for FAIR data management and customized the institutional data repository in order to meet community requirements.

13:35 – 13:55 Case 2: FAIR from a funding perspective - Anders Hede (Tryg Fonden) & Lea Sztuk Haahr (The Danish National Archives)

This case took a detour from a strict research perspective into a research funding perspective and the benefits gained from the FAIR principles. The funding agencies see an interest in implementing the FAIR principles as a demand in applications for funding. Their argument is that, data from funded projects will generate more scientific knowledge when they are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable in a long-term perspective.

13:55 – 14:15 Coffee break

14:15 – 14:35 Case 3: FAIRify debates from the Danish parliament (Folketinget) - Costanza Navarretta (Centre for Language Technology, NorS, KU-HUM) & Lene Offersgaard (KU-HUM)

How to FAIRify debates from the Danish parliament (Folketinget)? The written version of the Danish parliamentary debates have for some time been available online, but now following the FAIR data principles, they are also available via download from CLARIN.dk, and can be re-used in research. What were the main challenges and how can we take advantage of the FAIRness of these data?

14:35 – 14:55 Case 4: Making video data FAIR – Sille Julie Jøhnk Abildgaard (Department of Marketing, CBS) & Mareike Buss (CBS Library)

Making video data FAIR poses a series of challenges to the researcher: Can videos be made publicly accessible, where people can easily be identified? Which video formats are sustainable? Which resolution should be opted for? And where should the video files be archived? We will discuss these and other challenges and present our current solutions.

14:55 –15:00 Introduction to discussion panel - FAIR data principles: How far should and can we go? – Karsten Kryger, AAU University Library

15:00 – 15:30 Discussion panel with presenters – Sarah Jones, Ulf Jakobsson, Nikola Vasiljevic, Dorte Haltrup Hansen, Sille Julie Jøhnk Abildgaard and Karsten Kryger – Host: Paula Martinez Lavanchy (DTU Library)
