HMS IT cordially invites you to attend the inaugural Harvard University Research Data Access and Innovation Symposium. Recognizing the need to initiate a dialog within the University research community as well as the need to raise awareness around the potential use as well as current limitations around the access of data, the Symposium aims to target the interests of biomedical researchers, data scientists, data managers, data curators and librarians. This forum will provide an opportunity to discuss local and universal challenges relating to data management, access, sharing and security; the resources available to the Harvard Community; and innovative data management strategies by bringing together investigators and administrators, IT experts and representatives from funding agencies and industry with the goal of initiating an ongoing conversation between investigators and Harvard resource providers.
