In 2016, the European Commission published the concept of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The GO FAIR Initiative is a proposal for putting the EOSC into practice.
The GO FAIR Initiative aims to make research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable across national and disciplinary boundaries.
It has an open, bottom-up approach that allows to include all research fields and member states, thus enabling common use and reuse of research data in the future. Since most research fields today are interdisciplinary in nature, this adds significant value to the advance of knowledge in data-based research.
