DTL supports Open Science: an umbrella term for a technology and data driven systemic change in how researchers work, collaborate, share ideas, disseminate and reuse results, by adopting the core values that knowledge should be reusable, modifiable and redistributable.
One fundamental requirement for Open Science is that all research data and the associated tools and services should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (i.e. FAIR). However, securing the ‘technicalities’ needed for optimal reuse is necessary, but not sufficient. The entire method of scientific research is in rapid transition, as is shown in the movie below.
The movie depicts the vision of DTL and its partners (listed at the end) how this transition is happening. The short film also presents the Personal Health Train as an example of an Open Science project, demonstrating how Open Science projects can function at the forefront of contemporary science.
