Workshop A
Data Availability & Data Sharing – Opportunities & Challenges

10:00 - 12:30

  • What would it take to create a database of sufficiently anonymised data for biologics?
  • What information would be needed to create the database and help benchmark approaches?
  • The value of publicly available data vs isolated datasets
  • Importance of standardization and protocols to generate comparable data
  • The need to generate more data – building data internally vs collaborations
  • How can data and information be structured to be accessed across an organization?
  • The need for more experimental data to inform computational work
