Home GO FAIR Initiative Governance National Support and Coordination Offices

Countries wishing to join GO FAIR at the national level will likely have a national ‘support team’. Faithful to the nature of GO FAIR, there is no predetermined format for those teams. They can vary from one ‘national coordinator’ (potentially one of the coordinators of an Implementation Network) to a full National Support and Coordination Office. Yet, there are some general guidelines for GO FAIR involvement on a country level.

A GO FAIR national support team is thought to be responsible for the engagement and alignment of the national stakeholders related to the GO FAIR initiative. It may support GO FAIR Implementation Networks that are exclusively national. Representative(s) of the national GO FAIR teams or offices will interact according to agreed work plans with the International Support and Coordination Office.
