Webinar #12: An Introduction to the TRUST Principles – A use case of Trustworthy Data Repositories for Biomedical Sciences
On Monday, 07 October at 23:00 UTC, Dawei Lin (Associate Director for Bioinformatics; Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Transplantation) from the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases presented An Introduction to the TRUST Principles – A use case of Trustworthy Data Repositories for Biomedical Sciences, the 12th WDS Webinar and the second to focus on Health-related data.
This Webinar introduced the recently proposed TRUST Principles (Transparency, Responsibility, User Community, Sustainability, and Technology) that define the criteria for a repository to be considered trustworthy. With the concepts of trustworthiness and its assessment for data repositories new to some Biomedical fields, the Webinar then looked at the outcomes and lessons learned at a recent workshop on Trustworthy Data Repositories for Biomedical Sciences.
A video of the Webinar and the slides presented are now available through the Webinar #12 page.
Note: The WDS Webinar was complementary to a webinar aimed at the Research Data Alliance (RDA) community—specifically, the RDA/WDS Certification of Digital Repositories Interest Group—that gave an update on the status of a White Paper outlining the TRUST Principles.
