Open Science e COVID-19. Collaborare per contrastare la pandemia

Una serie di webinar e tutorial sulla condivisione dei dati su COVID-19

  • Tuesday, 21 July 2020

L’emergenza sanitaria da Covid-19 ha reso evidente la necessità di collaborare a livello globale. Per trovare soluzioni rapide ed efficaci alla pandemia è doveroso condividere nel modo più aperto possibile dati, pubblicazioni, software e altre tipologie di risultati scientifici. Se ne parlerà in una serie di webinar e tutorial organizzati dai nodi italiani di OpenAIRE, ELIXIR, RDA e EOSC Pillar.

I webinar hanno l'obiettivo di sensibilizzare la comunità scientifica sull’importanza della condivisione dei dati per monitorare l’evoluzione della pandemia Covid-19 e, soprattutto, per la ricerca di una cura efficace. Saranno messe in evidenza disomogeneità e incongruenze nella raccolta dei dati molecolari, epidemiologici e clinici, per poi illustrare strumenti e buone pratiche dell’Open Science e dell’Open Access. 

I tutorial saranno eventi formativi in cui si mostreranno soluzioni specifiche per condividere diversi tipi di dati omici e altri prodotti della ricerca, quali software di analisi e protocolli.

È necessario registrarsi per partecipare e per anticipare eventuali domande ai relatori. Il link per la registrazione si trova di seguito, sotto ciascun incontro.

Webinar: Covid-19 e condivisione del dati: perché in Italia si fa troppo poco?

Martedì 21 Luglio 2020, ore 17:00 (CEST) | 2 ore

Destinatari: Ricercatori, clinici, tecnici, componenti del nodo italiano di RDA, coinvolti nella raccolta, la produzione, l’analisi dei risultati della ricerca di Covid-19 (dati, pubblicazioni, software, ecc…). 

Si tratterà dell'urgenza di aderire a un modello di scienza aperto e collaborativo e degli aspetti specifici dell’Open Science per le ricerche su Covid-19. Inoltre verranno illustrate le principali iniziative europee per la condivisione di dati e risultati di ricerca all'interno della comunità scientifica.

How you can participate and how to follow training actions

Q&A session

Highlight: New students discovery in the Open Schools Journal for Open Science: "Since 2009, Kepler Space Telescope has been recording small reductions (eclipses) in the light of distant stars due to the transit of planets in front of them. Our goal is to detect planets in orbit around distant stars from Kepler's mission data, following the Reading Method using two programs written by our team in programme language C. If the readings are detected and confirmed, we proceed to their analysis. characteristics of the planet: Ray, inclination, distance from the star, and especially if it is in the so-called "habitable zone" which will make it possible to maintain life. However, we have already identified such an exoplanet in orbit around the star KIC 1432789, the characteristics of which our team analyzed for the first time." - from

Interoperability in EOSC: OpenAIRE Guidelines for repositories

  • Thursday, 11 June 2020

Athena Research Center and University of Cyprus Library, in the context of joint activities performed for OpenAIRE and NI4OS-Europe, organize a webinar to inform about repositories’ interoperability within the EOSC ecosystem. The webinar is part of the regular series of the Greek and Cypriot NOADs that aim to spread awareness to and facilitate adoption of important and relevant Open Science principles by their academic and research communities. 

This month the focus is on best practices for institutional and thematic repositories and on compliance with standards and protocols that enable effective and lossless information exchange between heterogeneous systems.


When? Thursday, 11 June 2020

Time: 11.00 am - 12.00 pm EEST


Language of presentation: Greek

Target audience: Repository managers


We are pleased to announce that guest speakers of this webinar are Antonis Lempesis and Stefania Martziou, Research Associates at Athena Research Center and members of the OpenAIRE technical team. 


Accessing scientific results which are available on digital infrastructures, such as repositories, is an important Open Science practice. Adoption of policies and standards as well as training for using repositories enhance, among other things, accessibility, findability and reusability of scientific outputs. Lately, there is a growing need for research data and services/ infrastructures which produce, share and preserve this data to follow the FAIR principles. However, data heterogeneity could have a negative effect on interoperability of systems. A solution to this challenge is provided by OpenAIRE for over ten years now, through specialised services which are also supported by NI4OS-Europe and EOSC. 


Repository managers will have the opportunity to be informed and explore:

  • the OpenAIRE Guidelines for enhancing interoperability
  • the Validator service for assessing repositories’ interoperability
  • the Repository Dashboard: a web service for content providers
 
 
 
Amnesia

Amnesia

the OpenAIRE data anonymization tool

  • Wednesday, 10 June 2020

Speaker: Manolis Terrovitis (Athena Research Centre)
Date: June 10th 2020
Time: 2 PM CEST


Amnesia is a flexible data anonymization tool that transforms relational and transactional databases to dataset where formal privacy guaranties hold. Amnesia transforms original data to provide k-anonymity and km-anonymity: the original data are transformed by generalizing (i.e., replacing one value with a more abstract one) or suppressing values to achieve the statistical properties required by the anonymization guaranties. Amnesia employs visualization tools and supportive mechanisms to allow non expert users to anonymize relational and object-relational data. 

Amnesia is implemented in java and javascript and it can be used as a standalone application or as a service. Moreover, it provides a ReST service API to allow the incorporation of its anonymization engine to other information systems. The tool is available through OpenAIRE and it has been used in several research projects including MEDA and MyHealthMyData.

 

Dr. Manolis Terrovitis  is a Researcher at the Information Management Systems Institute (IMSI) of Research Center Athena. His research work includes big data analytics, data privacy and anonymization methods. He received his PhD from the National Technical University of Athens (2007) and has been with the Department of Computer Science of The University of Hong Kong as a post-doctoral researcher (2007-2008). In 2009 he joined IMSI, first as a post-doctoral researcher and then as a Researcher. Google Scholar reports over 1900 citations to his work, which includes publications to some of the most prestigious venues in data management (VLDB, VLDBJ, TKDE etc). He has served as president of the Hellenic Accreditation System and a member of the Board of Directors of Information Society S.A. He head of Amnesia development in Athena RC and he has been involved in several national and EU funded R&D projects.  He has worked as a consultant at the private and public sector on the design and performance optimization of information systems and he is working as a Data Protection Officer in the National Network for Precision Medicine in Cardiology and in Oncology. Moreover, he has extensive experience on the application of privacy-by-design principles in the information ecosystems.
