The amount of data generated in scientific research projects is steadily increasing. For this reason, Data Management (DM) is nowadays an essential component of every research activity. Moreover, most funding agencies require a Data Management Plan (DMP) for new grant applications.
We would like to invite you to a webinar where we will introduce the major new features of the latest openBIS release. You will also have the chance to talk and ask questions to our openBIS developers. The webinar will take place on Thursday 12.11.2020 at 14:00-15:30.
All universities deal intensively with the topic of IT security and people’s awareness. One of the campaigns running at ETH is the PROTECT YOUR BRAINWORK. campaign. Let’s take a look at the EPFL library in Lausanne and their solution for IT security awareness.
Leonhard Med: Secure Scientific Platform for Confidential Data
A secure, powerful and
versatile IT infrastructure for research on confidential data at ETH Zurich
IT solutions for scientific research on confidential data (e.g. human
biomedical data) is a considerable challenge. This is because it requires
fulfilling three main criteria that span a wide area of expertise, and that are
difficult to achieve simultaneously:
Global lessons for our personalised medicine projects – GA4GH and ASHG conferences
At the end of last year have started several projects within the two major programmes: national one:
Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN) and
ETH-based: Personalized Health Research Technologies (PHRT)
They aim into finding novel solutions and at the same time applying in the clinical practice the principles of personalized (called also “precision”) medicine. The programmes need state-of-the art IT infrastructures and providing them is the goal of the BioMedIT alliance.
Scientific IT Services takes part in several SPHN and PHRT projects and is one of the driving forces of the BioMedIT. We provide the computing infrastructure (LeonhardMed), data management solutions (openBIS), we also help and collaborate on data transfer between hospitals and academia, data analysis and security. Thus, SIS needs to actively follow the current status of knowledge and technological developments in the “hot topics” between the IT and precision medicine applications. Simply because it is largely driven by new achievements in IT, in particular in the areas such as systems security, big data, deep learning or novel collaborative methodologies. Read more
ETH Scientific IT Services (ITS SIS) will hold two information events in November. These events will give an overview of how SIS supports modern research through the provision of scientific computing services such as computing clusters, data management and software development. Read more
