Objective of the Training of Trainers

This Training of Trainers (ToT) is set up to provide support to data stewards so that they can help combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first course will focus on awareness, and include subjects like: what does FAIR data stewardship entail? What are FAIR data? What is a Semantic Data model? What is a FAIR Data point?

This will be followed by a course how to set up a FAIR data point. Other courses will follow shortly.

The training sub objectives are to:

  • Help prepare ministries and institutions for publishing FAIR (meta)data regarding the pandemic;
  • Ensure that universities and institutions with medical data have capacities to assist the navigation of the crisis with quality data;
  • Ensure that data stewardship is carried out under strict adherence to the governance and regulatory framework of the country and institution where the data belong;
  • Enable data to be analysed in combination with data available globally;
