Introduction to FAIR principles - Open science through FAIR health data networks: dream or reality?

Since the FAIR data principles were published in 2016, many organizations including science funders and governments have adopted these principles to promote and foster true open science collaborations. However, to define a vision and create a video of a Personal Health Train that leverages worldwide FAIR health data in a federated manner is one step. To actually make this happen at scale and be able to show new scientific and medical insights for it is quite another!

In this webinar, we will dive into the basics of FAIR health data, but also take stock of the current situation in health data networks: after a year of frantic research and collaborations and many open datasets and hackathons on COVID-19, has the situation actually improved? Are we sharing health data on a global scale to improve medical practice, or is quality medical data still only accessible to researchers with the right credentials and deep pockets?

This webinar is part of the “How FAIR are you” webinar series and hackathon, which aim at increasing and facilitating the uptake of FAIR approaches into software, training materials and cohort data, to facilitate responsible and ethical data and resource sharing and implementation of federated applications for data analysis.

The CINECA webinar series aims to discuss ways to address common challenges and share best practices in the field of cohort data analysis, as well as distribute CINECA project results. All CINECA webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions. Please note that all webinars are recorded and available for posterior viewing.
