A biomedical researcher anno 2017 is also a data steward responsible for the data collection, data analysis, and reusability of the data. This responsibility and accountability for the data is often summarized in the acronym FAIR data: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. To facilitate the translational researcher with this data stewardship task, the collaborating research infrastructures in The Netherlands have been implementing and maintaining a broad set of solutions.

This workshop, a follow-up of the 2016 edition, will offer a unique opportunity to get exposed to these solutions in an informal setting. No lengthy classroom lectures; instead, you will get hands-on experience with a broad set of solutions, from Clinical to Imaging to Genomics and the integration thereof. You will be able to follow generic tutorials or even better: process your own data and tackle your own data issues. The sessions will be led by experts in the field.
