Active GO FAIR Implementation Network
This Implementation Network actively supports the implementation of the FAIR principles in the current nano-EHS databases, i.e. data on NM physicochemical characteristics, release and exposure, toxicity and functionality.

Main purpose and objectives
The main objective is to take new and ground-breaking steps in the nanosafety domain, specifically in the areas of grouping and read-across, hazard and risk assessment, Safe by Design, development of in silico approaches (e.g. QSARs) and development of nano-Adverse Outcome Pathways.

Data generators, database developers, data(base) users and regulators/policy makers are key players in nanosafety data. They can generate, stimulate and facilitate FAIR nanosafety data. Major public and private stakeholders in nanoscience are represented in this Implementation Network. These groups are currently developing the appropriate and efficient data management for nanomaterials to make their data sets and databases more FAIR. This distributed infrastructure enables the use and reuse of nanosafety data for the benefit of companies and society. AdvancedNano IN aims to advance innovation in nanoscience while improving human health and the environment through a shared infrastructure to support the generation, management, analysis, and (re)use of data. It constitutes a crucial element of various (inter)national initiatives, including DTL, ELIXIR, EMMC, EUON, NanoSafetyCluster, OpenRiskNet, and several ongoing NMBP projects.

Targeted Objectives for the Internet of FAIR Data and Services (IFDS)

  1. To provide a cross-domain interoperability framework consisting of methods, tools and guidelines for implementing and assessing semantic interoperability of heterogeneous research data across discipline borders.
  2. To develop and evaluate reference implementations of interoperability for real-world cross-domain research uses case by broadly applying existing standards, vocabularies and semantics technologies.
  3. To engage with other GO FAIR implementation networks and related initiatives to disseminate and exchange best practice solutions for cross-domain interoperability.
