This course is designed to provide an introduction to data sharing.

Course description

The course is divided into two parts (flipped classroom). The first part is a self-paced study with short videos, self-paced reading and quizzes. It can be found here: https://courses.bihealth.org: "Data Sharing in Clinical Research".

The second part is a hands-on training where you will have the opportunity to practice key skills and techniques and ask questions about your own project and discuss data sharing plans.

Learning objectives

The aim of this course is to provide you with a solid understanding of the principles and practices of data sharing in clinical research, and to help you take the necessary steps to effectively share and publish your own research data.

While the course is not designed to make you an expert in data management, it will help you become aware of common pitfalls and provide you with information on where to go for help with specific questions.

The training modules cover: 

  • FAIR and Open Data
  • Good data management practices
  • Legal aspects of data sharing
  • Interoperability and clean data
  • Minimisation and anonymisation of datasets
  • Opportunities for actual data sharing
  • Charité Berlin services for data management and data sharing with contact information
