Transforming data for the Internet of FAIR Data & Services

FAIRification services and demonstrating FAIR data value to end user

FAIR Services


Phortos Consultants offers a variety of services ranging from strategic consulting, training and data FAIRification services that provide the basis for analytics driven capabilities.

Strategic Consulting


We offer a variety of strategic consulting services. PC has been instrumental in the process of developing the FAIR principles through moderating the first FAIR UNConference at the Lorentz center in 2014. Since then Phortos Consultants was intricately involved in the birth of GO FAIR as a kick start implementation process for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

Organisational FAIR Readiness


We offer a fully fledged FAIR Readiness program for institutions and corporations intending to join the GO FAIR ecosystem. This program involves training of internal teams and organizational adoption of the FAIR principles as well as enabling services such as FAIRification of data and a unique use case driven FAIR Value demonstration program.

FAIR Data Integration


Phortos Consultants, in collaboration with partners, provides a FAIRification service of your data compliant with the GO FAIR principles (to be a GO FAIR certified Service soon). This process usually includes the following steps:

  • The format of the data will be determined and a semantic (meta)data model will be created.
  • Your data will be turned into FAIR Compliant RDF with reference to public domain identifiers.
  • The results will be published as a (private or public) FAIR Data Point.
  • In case of life sciences data, your FAIR data can be integrated in the Euretos AI Platform for knowledge discovery.

FAIR Data Value Event


An essential aspect in making FAIR data pervasive is the question: what is the value to the end user? FAIR data is an IT concept and far removed from the reality of the researcher. In order to demonstrate the value of FAIR data, its impact needs to be experienced as early as possible in any FAIR data implementation program.

To enable this value demonstration, Phortos Consultants, in collaboration with FAIR service provider Euretos, offers a so-called ‘FAIR data value demonstration event’ within the context of multi-omics, data driven target & biomarker research. With limited preparation a selection of raw data sources are processed and output as FAIR data and, more importantly, automatically integrated into the Euretos AI platform for end user access. Both data specialists and researchers can then experience the value of FAIR data.
