FDO to Structure the Domain of Knowledge
Keywords:data management, data sharing, FAIR data, FAIR Digital Objects
The Globally Integrated Dataspace will evolve and result in a domain full of digital artefacts and relations which in its size and complexity is unprecedented. Traditional methods of structuring the domain such as file structures are not sufficient any longer. On top of a layer of data centres and federations which need to implement mechanisms establishing trust, there will be layer of Virtual Collections serving different purposes. These VCs to a large extent need to be FAIR and persistent as well, since they include important information. We claim that the concept of FAIR Digital Objects is an excellent framework to build and manage these VC. Currently, there are a few implementations of the FDO concept.
