Dr Sansone takes part in French National Institute of Health and Medical Research workshop

The Centre's Associate Director (Life, Natural and BioMedical Sciences) Dr Susanna-Assunta Sansone took part in the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) workshop on Management and Reuse of Health Data: methodological issues in Bordeaux this month.

Dr Sansone presented in the workshop's Critical Assessment phase on Data Publication, in the session on Sharing and Discovery: Data Publication and Citation, along with other experts and academics in the field.

Inserm Workshops are designed to raise the awareness of the French and international scientific communities with regard to emerging technologies and topics in Life and Health Sciences. The workshops, which comprise both theory and practical phases, are presented by French and international scientists and are open to employees in the public and private sectors.

The theory phase reviews a technique and/or an emerging issue, to learn and assess its usefulness for a given research project and the laboratory; the practical phase takes place in a laboratory and is reserved for people that attended phase 1, to allow them to master a technique covered in the theory phase.

The theory phase of the Data Publication workshop will provide insights and tools regarding Open Data, Fair Data Management, data discovery and reuse, confidentiality and security, and explore the best practices to adopt throughout research processes.

The practical workshop at the end of June in Vandoevre-les-Nancy and Paris will detail the best practices to adopt from the collection of data to their publication so that they are findable, understandable, and reusable.
