The activities of the GO FAIR Implementation Networks are organized into three broad Pillars;
GO BUILD, focus on FAIR technology;
GO CHANGE, focus on priorities, policies and incentives for implementing FAIR;
GO TRAIN, focus on FAIR awareness and skills development training.
GO TRAIN aims to create a scalable, stakeholder-driven framework to rapidly train large numbers of competent, certified data stewards.
A major challenge is to effectively coordinate the numerous and diverse stakeholders in FAIR-related training where currently fragmentation and re-invention of the wheel are potential risks. GO TRAIN seeks an open, canonical training and education approach that can serve as a touchstone for global FAIR skills development drawing on agreed best practices.
GO FAIR’s International Office supports and coordinates the following broad activities within the GO TRAIN Pillar:
- Advisory on development of new GO TRAIN-related INs, including finalizing manifestos
- Identifying overlaps/synergies between INs
- The development of training curricula focused on FAIR Data Stewardship
- The development of certification schema’s for competencies in FAIR Data Stewardship and other FAIR related services
