  • promotes early developments in the international FAIR market and assits in creating stepping stones for pilot projects and/or reference implementations.
  • is a non-competitive, non-profit organisation, that is valued by the FAIR ecosystem as a reliable and trusted party.
  • executes a public-private-partnership program, where the focus is directed towards convincing market players to invest in products, services and solutions, rather than relying on governmental institutions to subsidize these developments.
