The case for federated analysis: a DataSHIELD perspective

Dr. Becca Wilson, University of Liverpool

DataShield is an open-source technological solution to facilitate co-analysis of individual-level data from several studies, without the need of sharing data outside of the host institution. Analysis is taken to the data – not the data to the analysis. DataSHIELD is currently being implemented in several large European projects and consortia. For this talk, Dr. Becca Wilson will discuss experiences, successes and obstacles of DataShield.

Date: December 7, 2022

Time: 13:00-14:00 (Central European Time)
