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.

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

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.

Joint webinar FREYA and OpenAIRE: New developments in the field of Persistent Identifiers

Joint webinar FREYA and OpenAIRE: New developments in the field of Persistent Identifiers

The importance of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.

  • Thursday, 10 January 2019

When: On January 10, 2019 at 10:00 CET

After all the festivities at the end of the year where family and friends connect, OpenAIRE together with FREYA started off the new year with a webinar on digital connections: the Persistent Identifiers. The Science Europe Data Glossary defines the term Persistent Identifier (PID) as “a long-lasting reference to a digital object — a single file or set of files”. As such, the importance of PIDs to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.   

FREYA is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission, aiming to extend the infrastructure for persistent identifiers (PIDs) as a core component of open research, in the EU and globally. FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access to research resources. In so doing, FREYA has carried out a survey of the current PID landscape, collected a vast amount of user stories in order to identify needs of the community to expand existing and establish new PID services, and is currently working on building a PID Graph.  

In the webinar, Ketil Koop-Jakobsen talked about a report on requirements for new PID Services. To identify demands and requirements for emerging PIDs, FREYA collected user stories from their respective communities and networks. More than 70 user stories were compiled, each identifying a specific PID demand from the community. Koop-Jakobsen introduced some of these stories and explained their influence on the development of new and emerging PID types. Amir Aryani, moreover, shed light on FREYA’s work on the PID Graph, talking about the discussion around the concept of the PID Graph itself and how FREYA partners are contributing to the actual setup of such a Graph.   

And Iryna Kuchma talked how OpenAIRE uses PIDs for discovery, enrichment, and linking of research results.
