To the relief of many, it was possible for the third Science Day of the National Healthcare Institute (ZIN) to take place live on 7 October. With science museum NEMO as the appropriate location, scientists, policymakers and administrators presented and discussed the day’s theme “Data: indispensable for a healthy society?” on 7 October.
Under the watchful eye of chairwoman Karin van den Boogaert, Cees Hof of DANS and Johan van Soest of Maastricht University spoke in their session “Learning from data: how to do that in practice” about the recalcitrance of working with data, both from a research perspective and a data management perspective. The dualistic view on working with data led to a dynamic and interactive discussion, with questions, suggestions and ideas for new initiatives.
The well-attended ZIN Science Day has been captured in a freely available summary video. On LinkedIn you can read more information and find impressions of this day. Read more about the National Healthcare Institute here.
