Wedensday morning Drop-in

Just a reminder that there is a Drop-in Meeting (Zoom - Launch Meeting - Zoom) with a scope of anything DataSHIELD tomorrow morning at 10:00 CET (09:00 GMT)


The attendance at the DataSHIELD Drop-in have been slow dropping. Currently it is unusual to have more that Demetris and myself.

I am looking for ideas about how to revitalize the DataSHIELD drop-in, change of time, change in structure, …? Any ideas or observations?


Hi Stuart thanks for the reminder. Although not a user of any system like DS currently, I think of applications now and then and recognise the importance of DS. I suspect any sort of current overview for comparing systems is out of scope of Wednesday am (and would get out of date), but saw a 10min overview of this JAMIA Open, 2024, 7(2), ooae040 infrastructure for secure data sharing: a clinical data implementation | JAMIA Open | Oxford Academic [1] and wondered if among what it does not offer is analytics in R .

sent in hope of being constructive not critical. Rollo

Hi, I’m not currently actively using DataSHIELD (I was using it for a pilot project a while ago), so wouldn’t have questions myself but would potentially be interested in learning from others as I might still use it in the future. For me, it’s simply that the time doesn’t work (I’m in Canada), and realistically I’m also unlikely to drop in on a session unless there happens to be a known topic of interest. Not sure if that helps, but I do appreciate the idea of the drop-in sessions! Cheers, Tina
