Emerging from the first plenary meeting of GO FAIR Implementation Networks (January 2019, Leiden), FAIR Convergence Matrix is a developing platform that uses a questionnaire to compile for any community of practice, an inventory of their self-declared FAIR implementation choices and challenges. The Convergence Matrix is itself a FAIR resource, openly available, and encourages voluntary participation by any self-identified community of practice (not only the GO FAIR Implementation Networks). Based on patterns of use and reuse of existing resources, the Convergence Matrix supports the transparent derivation of strategies that optimally coordinate convergence on standards and technologies in the emerging Internet of FAIR Data and Services. This co-located event will present the status of the platform development, the results of 32 research infrastructures that have completed the questionnaire, and will encourage an open discussion on how the Convergence Matrix can be improved.
