Home GO FAIR Initiative Governance Stakeholder Forum

The Stakeholder Forum is the representative body of (the coordinators of) the Implementation Networks (INs). This Forum represents user input from the ‘active community’ committed to follow the Rules of Engagement of GO FAIR.

The Stakeholder Forum itself is, in essence, the group of ‘Implementation Network (IN) coordinators’. Initially, as long as a relatively small number of INs exists, the Stakeholder Forum may actually be ‘identical’ to the Executive Board, but when the number of INs will grow (anticipated in 2018), there is likely a need to propose/elect representatives for the IN community with consideration to be balanced among the three main pillars in which INs operate: GO CHANGE, GO TRAIN, and GO BUILD.
