Subjects

ZonMw aims at improving the scientific and social impact of research output, including research data. To gain impact from research data, one must be able to reuse them for verification of research findings, or for future research.
To this end, ZonMw requires researchers to perform research data management and stewardship (RDM), and to share their data to contribute to future, innovative research.
ZonMw’s procedures for RDM aim at creating data that are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR), and high quality research projects.

Open data or FAIR data?

Open data or fair data

FAIR data are not necessarily OPEN data. Through the ‘A’ of Accessibility, one can state the conditions for sharing the data (‘restricted access’). The FAIR principles are in line with the policy of research funders like ZonMw and NWO to make research data “as open as possible, and as closed as needed”.

Interesting things to do with data

E-data & research

The digital newsletter (also on paper !) E-Data & Research, issued by DANS, shows interesting examples of what one can do with data. The articles are about various research fields, and bring abstract concepts to life. They give clear explanations that are also useful for life sciences.

Animal-free innovations for better COVID-19 research

This summer, 40 research projects into the coronavirus pandemic and the consequences of thisstarted with funding from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. We rapidly need a lot of knowledge about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease COVID-19. Animal-free models can play a role in that because the results can be better translated to humans and yield outcomes faster. Five projects with animal-free research will therefore start.

Open Access: more impact from research

Open Access publishing ensures that research is quickly and easily accessible. During the coronavirus pandemic, the importance of that has become clearer than ever before. For example, doctors and patients search for information about the treatment of COVID-19. To increase the impact of knowledge, ZonMw will tighten the guidelines for Open Access with effect from 1 January 2021. What will change?

Hoe beïnvloedt digitalisering de maatschappij? Twee jaar na het verschijnen van de onderzoeksagenda "Digitale samenleving" van de Vereniging van Universiteiten (VSNU) blikken vier betrokken onderzoekers terug op de afgelopen periode. Wat kunnen zij nu zeggen over de manier waarop digitalisering alle aspecten van het dagelijks leven bereikt en verandert? De sprekers gaan ook in op de rol van de wetenschap in het beantwoorden van die vragen.
