Congratulations to the successful applicants to our first open call!

Our first open call for FAIR support was launched on March 31st and provided two defined support actions that the community could apply to join. The first is a FAIRness assessment challenge and the second focuses on enabling FAIR Signposting and RO-Crate for content/metadata discovery and consumption. 

By the deadline of June 1st, we received 51 applications. Each application was evaluated by three reviewers comprised of members of the FAIR Implementation Team and volunteers from across the FAIR-IMPACT pillar workpackages and our EOSC FAIR Champions. The quality of the applications was very high and we are delighted to announce those that have been selected to participate in the support actions which will begin in September.
