Great talk about Secure Health Data Infrastructures by @msuhr . Abstract and slides can be found under https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/open_research_secure_health_data/
I'm at @fosdem this weekend, currently in the session on Open Research Tools. Three great talks so far, all analyzing the same deficiencies: training of scientists, sustainability of software, best practices in development.
Interestingly, no one presented the obvious solution so far: Research Software Engineers! 😉
We should work on our outreach!
Happy to see this announced today. This years #deRSE19 was a great experience.

The position paper "Towards FAIR principles for research software"
https://doi.org/10.3233/DS-190026 explores potential modifications to the #FAIR principles to make them better applicable to software. Interesting and comprehensive read, but it IMO falls short in regards to (R)e-use, especially due to the vague part on licensing. A clearer recommendation for #freesoftware licenses would provide a more stable basis for #OpenScience.
EOSC Rules of Participation
The #EOSC Working Group on Rules for Participation (RoP) has released their brainstorming document and invite comments until Mon, 2019-12-02:
(yes, this is a Google Doc and everyone is aware of the irony...)
"... it would have caused less work, cost less money, and provided the Foundation a lot less stress. But it also would be wrong."
Good to see @gnome stands firm against a patent troll - "not just for #GNOME and #Shotwell, but for all #FreeSoftware and #OpenSource software projects":
Open Data Directive (EU) 2019/1024
It's still nearly two years until the national states need to implement it and the main focus is on Public Sector Information (being the recast of 2003/98/EC). Nevertheless, it is good to see that the #FAIR principles made it in for (most) data from tax-funded research:
The usual restriction - privacy, IPR, etc. - of course still apply 😉
Five projects have recently started (funded via #H2020 INFRAEOSC-05):
* EOSC Synergy
While not obvious from the names, these are all regional consortia, with partially similar tasks:
* Map national service landscape
* Build capabilities (national thematic services)
* Promote FAIR/ORDM
* Provide training
Project #5 is EOSC Secretariat, but that another topic.
The first #EOSC Concertation Meeting took place in Brussels, 2019-09-09/-10, the final report is now online:
Scientist in immunology, both experimental and computational. Data socialist. Open source enthusiast. Coffee nerd.
