While many researchers are interested in making their data open, it is not always clear what they should do to ensure that their data is FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. This paper reports how we applied the Design Jam method to help experts and policymakers ideate user-friendly solutions to implement the FAIRData Principles into simple and actionable instructions for researchers. We suggest that visual prototyping and co-design methods can be successfully used in policy implementation to facilitate collaboration while exploring and concretizing complex ideas.
