Workshop: Life Science Knowledge Management

The RESET-affiliated project Crossover Research 2: Well-constructed Knowledge Commons is arranging a workshop on life science knowledge management on June 25-26 at Hotel Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim. ​ Participation is completely free and the registration deadline is June 17.

The main obstacle for computationally enabled data-driven knowledge discovery in the life sciences is often presented as an issue of data management.

While large-scale initiatives like Open Science and FAIR further emphasise the value placed on the sharing and integration of research data, the issue of knowledge management has received less attention. In this workshop, lessons from the interdisciplinary project Crossover Research: Well-constructed Knowledge Commons are summarised, focusing on questions such as:

  • What do we mean by a life science knowledge commons?
  • How does life science knowledge management differ from research data management?
  • How can the work of Crossover Research project be utilized by the larger scientific community?
