The GO FAIR Foundation: we’re here to serve you!

In what way?


GFF will play an important role in the development of the GO FAIR market.


GFF bridges the gap between vision and implementation of the GO FAIR initiative.


GFF plans to support the market with a comprehensive certification program.

GO FAIR Principles

Supports the GO FAIR guiding principles.

GO FAIR Market

Focus on early developments in the international GO FAIR market and assist in creating relatively small stepping-stones for pilot-projects and/or reference implementations.


Supports the market in a non-competitive, non-profit way, valued by the eco-system as a reliable and trusted party to engage in GO FAIR related projects.


Develop a Public-Private-Partnership Program, whereby the focus will be on inviting market-players to invest themselves in products, services and solutions, rather than relying on governmental institutions to subsidize the developments.


Focus on preparing the market for pre-certification, initially via the implementation of a “GO FAIR Readiness program”. This program will be used to serve the fast growing market of FAIR Data and Services.
