Artificial Intelligence (AI) is often mentioned as the solution to many of our future challenges, also within healthcare, and in January 2020 the Norwegian Government launched a National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence. What role could AI play in cancer diagnostics? How should diagnoses be set in the future, and which new questions might arise when introducing new technologies?

How you can generate a data management plan for a Life Science research project that will meet the requirements of the funding organisations?

Time and place: Mar. 4, 2020 9:00 AM, Bergen, Lars Hilles gate 30, UiB Learning Lab Store læringsrom,

Time and place: Mar. 2, 2020 10:00 AM, Botanical Gardens, Oslo

This workshop aims at enabling an arena for researchers, policy advisors and legal practitioners to discuss current developments on debates on access to and commercial exploitation of biodiversity. Some key questions: What happens when physical collections become digital data? How would data be published, stored and shared? How would the access to digital collections be regulated? How would that affect access to physical collections? Do we need national systems for monitoring access and use of physical/digital collections? What are best policy solutions? We invite DLN partners to a 1-day workshop. The workshop will start by inviting a discussion on main challenges regarding access to genetic materials in Norway, to follow on the particular debate on access to and use of Digital Sequence Information (DSI) as it is currently addressed in the framework of the Nagoya Protocol. In this regard, the workshop includes a focus the shortcomings of the notion of DSI, and on current debates on monitoring and tracking systems for digital genetic information.
