The researcher Celia Alvarez, from the SAS team, has been explaining the importance of using FAIR Data Policy in Health Research in the 16th International Digital Curation Conference

The 16th edition of the International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC) took place on 19th of April 2021 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Edinburgh, UK.

The 16th edition of IDCC focuses on data quality and its impact on research output. Suggested topics include transparency in all aspects of data collection and assessment, data sovereignty, promoting diversity and inclusion in digital skills programmes, and the curation of misinformation.

In FAIR4Health Project, a FAIRification workflow, based on GO FAIR initiative, has been developed by including new steps, because we have addressed the ethical, legal and technical aspects that health data includes due to its nature. These aspects (or requirements of the health data) have been analysed for sensitive data and FAIRification tools, based on the use of the HL7 FHIR standard, have been developed to obtain FAIR data from data resulting from biomedical research.
