Today, a first public version of a knowledge tool for research data sharing was presented at the EDCTP Forum. It was developed by a team from The Global Health Network. The session aimed to introduce the tool to an audience of clinical researchers and to receive as much feedback from them as possible.
Dr Michael Makanga, EDCTP Executive Director, introduced this EDCTP-funded project. Open data sharing, in general, is seen more and more as a key factor for progress in many areas. From banking to climate change, data and know-how are shared in professional fields to make faster progress by learning best practices and housing better data.
