The Office of the Associate Director for Data Science (ADDS) at the National Institute of Health (NIH) invites you to attend Got Data? Building a Sustainable Ecosystem for Data Driven Research as part of its Frontiers in Science webinar series.
The Frontiers in Science series brings ideas at the forefront of data science to the NIH and biomedical science communities. Lectures, webinars, and workshops in this series are intended to inspire biomedical data science innovation and exploration.
TITLE: Got Data? Building a Sustainable Ecosystem for Data Driven Research
DATE: Thursday, November 5, 2015, 4 – 5PM
LOCATION: NIH Main Campus, Building 35A Room 620/630. The event will be broadcasted live here.
Innovation in a digital world presupposes that the data will be there when you need it, but will it? Without sufficient data infrastructure and attention to the stewardship and preservation of digital data, data may become inaccessible or lost. This is particularly problematic for data generated by sponsored research projects where the focus is on innovation rather than infrastructure, and support for stewardship and preservation may be short-term. In this presentation, Dr. Fran Berman discusses sustainability, infrastructure, and data, and explores the opportunities and challenges of creating a viable ecosystem for the data on which current and future research and innovation increasingly depend.
