The value of open data to good scientific practice is increasingly recognized, and there is a drive to make data more accessible to help promote transparency, improve reproducibility, provide greater opportunities for scientific discovery and accelerate innovation. However, any data-sharing system also needs to embody the ethical, legal and regulatory frameworks that govern data-use and individual privacy.
We are developing an infrastructure that can inform and support researchers at every stage of the experimental process, from design to long-term curation, whilst also enable research participants full-control over how their data is used, at any time point.
We are currently building a web-based platform to share data acquired within the Centre. It will be available here once it is live.
