we are inviting you to discussions on a variety of themes around formalising the governance of DataSHIELD, taking place over the next 3 months.
The idea is to complete each document in a single session so that by the end we can arrive at a working/functioning process. But we shouldn’t be overly worried about it being perfect - it is allowed to be adapted or refined in the future!
These are the topics that will be discussed:
|17 May||Stakeholders, Roles, and Decision-Making Groups||Define
Decision-making groups (within DS community) e.g SC, DAB (?), working groups etc
|24th May||Stakeholders, Roles, and Decision-Making Groups||Continue discussion of roles and decision making groups||…|
|31st May||Stakeholders, Roles, and Decision-Making Groups||Discuss Constitution Introduction, complete discussion of roles and decision making groups||…|
|7th Jun||Steering Committee||Decide make-up of SC
And any other groups
|14 Jun||Decision-making and dispute resolution||Define decision-making process by SC and any other groups||…|
|28 Jun||Social Contract||Reach agreement||…|
|12 Jul||Code of Conduct + Diversity and participation statement||Reach agreement||…|
Link to join each session: Launch Meeting - Zoom
Each topic will have its own forum post, to be linked in the table above, to collect discussion and relevant information in preparation for the meeting. Zoom links will also be disseminated there nearer to the time.
We really want people to read and suggest edits in advance. Reading the work done during the March workshop is strongly recommended, available here;
- Constitution Introduction
- stakeholders document
- Steering Committee
- Decision-making and dispute resolution
- Glossary of terms
- overall constitution
We WILL be making final decisions at each of these meetings - this is YOUR chance to participate.
Hope to see you there!
