The F.A.I.R statement

The F.A.I.R. statement is separate from CAUL's Fair, affordable and open access to knowledge program. The F.A.I.R. Statement Steering Group (FSSG) was established in early 2017 to address the implementation of the statement.  Jill Benn, CAUL Program Director (Fair, affordable and open access to knowledge, 2017- ) was appointed chair.

A website FAIR Access to Australia’s Research was established to support the FSSG.  (Hosted by Griffith University, maintained by AOASG's Dr Virginia Barbour)
