Galaxy: an open infrastructure for biological data analysis

  • Thursday, 03 December 2020

Athena Research Center (ARC), in the context of the new series of informative and educational workshops on COVID-19 research organised as part of the OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk and ELIXIR-Greece activities, invites you to an educational webinar on Galaxy - an infrastructure for biological data analysis. 

“Galaxy: an open infrastructure for biological data analysis”

When: Thursday 3 December 2020

Time: 12.30 - 14.30 p.m EET

Language of presentations: Greek

Target audience: Researchers, Health Professionals, Academic Staff, Librarians, Students

The webinar is held in collaboration with the Biomedical Sciences Research Center “Alexander Fleming” and the Institute of Applied Biosciences of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas. The purpose of the webinar is twofold: on the one hand to inform about best practices and tools developed for the scientific field of Biomedicine and Open Science, on the other hand to focus on implementation of best practices on data analysis through the Galaxy service while familiarising researchers with its functionalities and use. During the webinar, scientists and researchers will be able to understand the service’s basic functions as well as how they can use it in their research, focusing on COVID-19 activities. Furthermore, interactions with speakers are encouraged in the discussion session through posing questions and communicating use case scenarios that will strengthen compliance with global practices and will enhance the service’s utilization / exploitation by the Greek research community.

GDPR and training

How to organize GDPR compliant online events

  • Wednesday, 28 October 2020

The OpenAIRE Community of Practice for Training coordinators hosted this 1.5 hour-long webinar and collaborative writing sprint on organizing GDPR compliant online events.

Prodromos Tsiavos (Legal Adviser of "Athena" Research & Innovation Center and OpenAIRE) provided good practice advice and Walter Scholger (Zentrum für Informationsmodellierung, Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities, Universität Graz) talked about the Consent Form Wizard https://consent.dariah.eu/  followed by  discussions on how to make sure that GDPR requirements are properly addressed and personal data is protected. It covered best practices for online event organisation, including pre- and post-event (registration, carrying out, evaluation, etc.). It also addressed the following aspects: how to inform correctly about a session recording and how to make the recordings available (e.g. with public chat messages, etc.), good practices on making collaborative documents (developed at online sessions) publicly available, issues to consider during large online events, how to optimize the online events workflows, whether national differences in Europe play a big role, etc. Plain language templates and checklists were discussed in breakout group writing sprints and will be shared with a wider training community. 

The following good practice recommendations are being developed during the writing sprints: 

  1. Before the event: Template/s: plain language wording for online registration forms (disclaimers, permissions, notice that consent could be withdrawn any time) and good practices for online events registration - e.g. a host organization manages registration on its website and has full control of data and a way to safely manage it, event access under password (not a direct link), etc.  Moderator: Rene van Horik (DANS, EOSChub) 
  2. During the event: Wording suggestions for recording announcements, disclaimers and permissions (e.g. what will be captured - video, webcam footage, audio, text chat messages and displayed username; inform participants on how to anonymize themselves - change names, blur video, etc; is the participant’s consent needed - in writing - accept and continue at registration or verbal expression is sufficient, etc.). Any other tips for running online events. Moderator: Ellen Leenarts (DANS, OpenAIRE) 
  3. After the event: Template/plain language wording to deal with personal data in evaluation/feedback forms. GDPR friendly tools and checklists for making online session materials publicly available - recording, collaborative documents, etc. Checklists/workflows for keeping online events documentation, registration and recording: e.g. beware of not keeping backups with actual names and email addresses; anonymize before backing up and storing, secure storage (encrypted?), etc. Retention period: for how long the data could/should be kept and when it will be deleted, etc. Moderator: Iryna Kuchma (EIFL, OpenAIRE)

GDPR and Research: Where We Stand

  • Monday, 04 May 2020

 

 

The National Open Access Desks in Greece and Cyprus, continue their webinar series to inform about key Open Science issues in support of their scientific and academic communities’ needs. This month, the focus is on the General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR and its application to the research process.

OpenAIRE Webinar: “GDPR and Research: Where We Stand”

When: May 4, 2020

Time: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EEST


Language of Presentation: Greek

Target Audience: Librarians, Academics, Researchers, Students


We are pleased to announce that the guest speaker of this webinar is legal expert Prodromos Tsiavos, Legal Adviser of "Athena" Research & Innovation Center and OpenAIRE.

The GDPR complexity resulted in the need to better understand the regulation’s provisions and how it is applied in the research conduct, also in line with Open Science. The purpose of the webinar is to analyze important issues surrounding the application of the Regulation at all stages of the research lifecycle. More specifically, the webinar will examine the following:

  • The basic concepts of GDPR
  • The exception for scientific research
  • Special categories of personal data
  • Management of personal data within the research cycle
  • Digital services for Open Science and GDPR
