FAIR is the central theme in the FAIR Data Austria project. The focus is on the development of repositories and automated data management plans as well as accompanying trainings that enable researchers to increasingly integrate the FAIR principles into their activities.

The FAIR Office Austria initiative emerged from this project and set itself the task of networking stakeholders from research and service institutions in order to jointly advance the topic of FAIR principles in Austria. At the same time, it is linked to the global GO FAIR initiative.
