Hi Andreas,
It is great to hear of this initiative and it is truly inspiring to hear
that it was conceived of and developed in 2 weeks. Secure analytics
platforms such as this is something that is very much needed and fills a
gap between the private data and public data.
From what you describe, the model used seems very similar to the SAIL
databank platform in the UK. It might be worth reaching out to them to swap
notes as well.
I am particularly interested in how you managed to solve the social
dynamics of this socio-technical problem in such away that it balanced the
various competing social and institutional needs. I’m interested in this
because I think it forms a nice case study for the Social Dynamics of Data
Interoperability IG. Being able to extract and compile problem-solution
patterns for such challenges is something the IG is interested in and would
complement and benefit anyone looking to adopt the open source solution
that is being funded by the EOSC.
Kind regards
