Personal Health Train will help research on viral outbreaks

News News

The GO FAIR Implementation Network launched the Virus Outbreak Data Access Network (VODAN). This aims to optimize data management and the reuse of data on viral outbreaks.

Members of the rapid response VODAN implementation network will FAIRify COVID-19 data. Making it Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. As a next step, localized FAIR data repositories will be developed. There, scientists can access the data with their research questions, using the Personal Health Train principle. This means: safe and in accordance with the local conditions for data management. Then, FAIR also means Federated AI-Ready.

This work will surely be of benefit for future epidemic outbreaks but maybe already for the COVID-19 pandemic.
