As funders move toward requirements that research outputs be FAIR, some academic institutions are organizing service points around scholarly communications and “digital stewardship competency.” This course aims to further expert capacity related to FAIR data initiatives at academic institutions or organizations that directly serve domain-based researchers. Topics will include a comparative overview of current FAIR initiatives, organizations, and projects around the globe and tips on how to navigate the differences in funding agency requirements for FAIR data. We will discuss what it means to be FAIR at the institutional level and consider policies across research support service units.
