GO FAIR Foundation


About GO FAIR Foundation

The GO FAIR Foundation (GFF) was established in February 2018 as a separate legal entity under Dutch law in order to support the FAIR principles and metrics, and the GO FAIR International Support & Coordination Office (GFISCO). It is GFF's mission to play an important role in the development of an Internet of FAIR Data & Services. The Foundation’s main focal point is to develop certifications for a variety of GO FAIR tools and services. In addition, GFF participates in (European) projects like EOSC Secretariat and EOSC Nordic, implementing the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and bringing forward the Foundation’s expertise. Besides these two roles, GFF sets out to foster FAIR market developments by inviting market players to actively participate in start-up initiatives and FAIR pilot projects in order to demonstrate the value of datasharing and datavisiting based upon these principles. More information can be found at www.gofairfoundation.org
