NIH Workshop on Trustworthy Data Repositories for Biomedical Sciences

8 April @ 13:0019:00 UTC+0

The NIH Data Science Strategic Plan aims to modernize the ecosystem of biomedical data repositories. This workshop will introduce the concepts of trust principles for data repositories, which address management aspects of data repositories. The workshop will introduce the CoreTrustSeal Core Trustworthy Data Repositories Requirements (an emerging, international, community-based standard) to evaluate the management of data repository operations in biomedical sciences.

Workshop speakers include advocates for using Trustworthiness Standards to support data sharing and data transparency (including CoreTrustSeal board members) and representatives from biomedical data repositories that already have trustworthiness certification. The targeted audiences are key data repository management personnel and NIH Program, Scientific Review and Policy Staff who work with data repository related programs.

The workshop will focus on high-level management of data resources, not technical details of operations. The first morning will be webcast and will introduce (1) the role of repository trustworthiness in supporting an effective data sharing ecosystem and (2) the proposed Core Requirements. The remainder of the workshop will not be webcast but will include hands-on exercises to enhance understanding. The workshop includes time to consult on specific topics to prepare a certification application. CoreTrustSeal reviewers will be available to answer repository-specific questions by appointment on the second day.

The in-person workshop is an invitation-only event due to limited space, and part of the workshop will be provided by webinar to those are interested in the workshop.
