|UK Data Service|
Louise Corti firstname.lastname@example.org
In this webinar, we will introduce best practices surrounding licensing and governance models for providing research access to data assets. Run by experienced data practitioners, the focus in on practical and efficient ways to get data assets for research through the pipeline from data creator to user. We address a variety of data sources from data from academic, public and civil society bodies, and also consider the challenges of providing access to bigger data sources, such as social media data and data from commercial organisations.
The webinar will showcase the approach used by the UK Data Service utilising our robust Data Access Policy and Five Safes framework, which enable a data publisher to provide access to licensed data holdings, be it open data or data that requires controlled access. The good philosophy is to make data open where possible and closed where necessary, using a plan for optimising fair data access that meets relevant ethical and legal restrictions. We will provide a walk through of actual protocols used by data brokers and data owners.
Participants will learn about:
