In 2019, the Danish Agency for Education and Research published a strategy for national collaboration on digital research infrastructure, in which significant initiatives were written on data management based on the FAIR principles, and is seen as the first Danish national response to the European open data directive (PSI directive), requiring national policies to be drawn up for making research data available in accordance with the FAIR principles.
In 2021, a strategy for data management based on the FAIR principles was published by DeiC's data management team. The strategy contains proposals for concrete efforts within a number of general areas, and is the basis for current work in the implementation of the FAIR strategy.
In 2022, a steering group was set up by the Danish Agency for Education and Research, with the task of following the implementation of the FAIR strategy at Danish universities and other public research institutions. The steering group established five working groups, targeting respectively data management policies and research support, data management infrastructure, funding, skills, and security. Over 60 experts from various professional environments from Danish universities, foundations and various public and private organizations have participated in the work. You can read their report here.
In 2022, the Danish Agency for Education and Research extended the mandate for the work for another two years.
