Fair for Fusion - open access for fusion data in Europe

The overall objective of this project is to make European-funded data more widely available to the fusion-related communities, other scientific communities, funding bodies and the general public in order to maximise the impact of the data and to demonstrate the importance of the work carried out in the relevant sites.
We aim to achieve all the stated objectives not only by providing a structure for such open data platform, but also by demonstrating and obtaining feedback from current users in the field of fusion, ensuring the benefits of such open scientific approach and that we are able to obtain feedback to contribute to the project. We also demonstrate these tools to other communities involved in open data initiatives (such as EOSC partners) to gain insight based on their experience to date. We are developing tools to support some of the foundations of FAIR and open data based on existing strategies, which can be used both as standalone services and as elements of a future open data platform. Where possible, we use existing services and tools, adapting them to the needs of the fusion community where necessary.
