The commission that laid the foundation for the work with the national strategy for data management based on the FAIR principles, was prepared on the basis of a strategy written in 2021. The strategy is part of the realization of the EU's directive on open data and the Danish implementation of this in the PSI Act. The strategy defines a number of principles and associated areas of action, with the aim of strengthening dissemination and financing and good data management practices, based on FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable), in Denmark. To ensure the national coordination of the implementation of the strategy, the Danish Agency for Education and Research has set up a steering group.
Implementation in 2022
The result of the initial work can now be read about in the report 'Report on the National Strategy for Data Management based on FAIR principles (2022)'. The working groups have dealt with questions about certification of services and infrastructures, the universities' policies in the data management area, expenses in connection with FAIR data management, and competence development in the area. The report shows that the Danish universities already have or are working on data management policies where FAIR measures are included. However, there is still a long way to go from policies to actual implementation of the FAIR principles, and there is therefore a need for FAIR to reach further into research environments in practice.
Implementation in 2023
Based on the results and recommendations of the working groups, which can be read in the report from 2022, a committee was formed for the mandate period 2023-24, and therefore builds on the work that has already been made in 2022.
This page will be updated during the year, with links to an commission, action plan, and a report for work done in 2023.
