FASEB DataWorks! A new initiative to support data sharing and re-use
Data are a fundamental component of the research process. Sharing that data is essential to accelerate and enhance research discoveries and to advance research findings. Central to this process, the NIH is responsible for promoting the sharing and management of scientific data to promote reproducibility and translation of research results to advance science, medicine, and public health.
This session will inform the attendees about the facts and details of the NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing, which goes into place as a requirement for all NIH-funded investigators on January 25, 2023. A special initiative sponsored by FASEB DataWorks! will also be presented. This program has been established to support investigators in navigating the oftentimes confusing open-data landscape and to assist them in designing effective practices for data sharing. The session will end with a question-and-answer opportunity for attendees.
