The FAIR principles
The University of Oslo wants to manage research data according to international standards, such as the FAIR principles, and thereby support the development of a global research community in which research data is widely shared. The Norwegian Government's strategy, the Norwegian Research Council’s policy and the EU requirements encourage the management of research data to be in accordance with the FAIR principles.
The FAIR principles:
- Interoperable - Data should be able to be opened, understood, combined, reused, and processed without restrictions, both now and in the future.
In order for the research data to be reusable, the quality must be of the highest, and therefore both data and metadata must be findable, accessible and interoperable. Read more here.
