Linking community and technology

Knowledge exchange and engagement are very important for being innovative and flexible for our research community. Our multidisciplinary team consists of our basic DataHub staff as well as colleagues from other departments who work at DataHub on a regular basis. This close collaboration is embodied in the DataHub community. In our community we highly value teamwork and openness. 

Get involved

Various stakeholders meet and can challenge each other in the area of FAIR data. The combined expertise in the triangle of research, clinic and support enables the "hands-on" development of a sustainable generic but modular extendable research data management infrastructure. To facilitate knowledge exchange between the various stakeholders and collaborative product development, DataHub is actively hosting an online collaboration environment (Confluence), aiming at knowledge transfer.

Join us for the next DataHub sprint review

The purpose of a sprint review is to have a conversation with our stakeholders about how to improve our products. A sprint review takes place at the end of a sprint and is designed to gather actionable feedback on what the DataHub team has completed. During a sprint review we will put you in the driver's seat concerning (changes to) the products we have made. By collaborating and getting your direct feedback we are able to create more value for you and your colleagues. Your input will be highly appreciated. For more information about the current sprint goal and application for a sprint review, please visit the events section on the RDM portal.
