Data4lifesciences to Health-RI symposium

Calendar Event March 9th 2020, 13:00

Join us on March 9th 2020 at the Data4lifesciences to Health-RI symposium which will be held at Villa Jongerius in Utrecht.

Over the past 5 years the Data4lifesciences programme has evolved into a highly-appreciated knowledge sharing platform for the Dutch UMCs for their research data infrastructure. The Dutch UMCs and many partner institutes now venture into a new phase with Health-RI, the national data infrastructure for health research. An excellent occasion to look back on the successes of Data4lifesciences and to look forward to the great promise of data-driven health research in the Health-RI era.

Who to attend?

The symposium is open to everyone interested, but it will be particularly interesting for anyone involved in FAIR data stewardship, data sharing and IT applications in biomedical research, ranging from people with an IT background to researchers, research support staff, and policy makers. We particularly welcome anybody who has contributed to the Data4lifesciences program in any form. We will close the meeting with drinks and bites to celebrate the results of 5 years Data4lifesciences.

The program is free of charge, but you will need to register below to join.
