Transversal Projects

The thematic areas addressed by FAIR spokes involve many levels of possible interaction. This is because the project aims to solve complex problems that span across different areas, and to do so, it is necessary to share approaches, materials, and information.
Cooperation within FAIR is ensured by the Transversal Projects (TP), which bring together researchers working on a common research challenge that extends across various work packages, which are indeed transversal to individual spokes.

The Transversal Projects are dynamic working groups tasked with fostering synergies among the different spokes and laying the groundwork for further collaborations. During the project’s execution, new cross-cutting challenges may emerge, potentially leading to the creation of new TP.
