Forecasting Costs for Biomedical Data Preservation: Public Briefing Webinar

Join the National Academies for a public briefing webinar about our recent report on life cycle decisions for biomedical research data.

About this Event

Preserving and promoting access to data from biomedical research accelerates scientific discovery and improves health outcomes.  In order to plan for the disposition of these increasingly complex data sets, researchers and data archivists need to be able to accurately budget for the costs associated with long-term data curation.

Our recent report, Life Cycle Decisions for Biomedical Data: The Challenge of Forecasting Costs, examines approaches for forecasting costs for preserving, archiving, and promoting access to biomedical research data. This report provides a comprehensive conceptual framework for cost-effective decision making that encourages data accessibility and reuse for researchers, data managers, data scientists, and institutions that support platforms that enable biomedical research data preservation, discoverability, and use. 

Registration is Open

Learn more about the report by joining us for a public briefing webinar on July 20, 2020 from 2-3pm ET. During the webinar, members of the committee will discuss the key findings and conceptual framework presented in the report, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.  Register here:
