Biomedical researchers in 2016 are also data stewards, responsible for data collection,
analysis, and reusability. Such responsibility and accountability for data is often summarized in the acronym FAIR data: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.

To help translational researchers with their data stewardship task, collaborating research infrastructures in The Netherlands have been implementing and maintaining a broad set of solutions.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to see these solutions in an informal setting. There are no lengthy classroom lectures. Instead, you will acquire hands-on experience across a broad set of solutions, from Clinical to Imaging to Genomics – including strategies for data integration. Not only will you be able to follow generic tutorials, but you will have the opportunity to process your own data and tackle your own data issues. The sessions will be led by experts in the field.


Participants will have the opportunity to follow all of the workshops
