Together with Maastricht University and the MUMC, SURF is organising the SURF Research Bootcamp. The bootcamp is organised for researchers and research support staff. An interesting program awaits, featuring exciting hands-on workshops and an informative session. This is an free, on-site event at Maastricht University.
From 13:00 – 16:00, you can attend a workshop or an information session. You can choose from three workshops and one information session.
From 16.00 – 18.00 we will organise drinks to conclude the SURF Bootcamp.
Some sessions have a participant limit, so register soon. Please note that the medium of communication for this event is English, and it is exclusively an on-site event.
1. Workshop Ldot, a study management system developed by Maastricht University.
Ldot is an app that can securely store participant data for scientific research and simplify logistics. This session will discuss experiences with storing data and logistical challenges, and demonstrate Ldot’s functionality. The coordinator of the Cardiac Tissue Repository, Michiel Henkens, will explain how Ldot has helped with logistics, and attendees can try out Ldot in different use cases.
2. Personal Health Train (PHT) workshop
This session introduces the Personal Health Train (PHT) concept and includes a hands-on session. The PHT brings algorithms to where the data is, rather than centralizing the data. It allows controlled access to diverse data sources while ensuring privacy and patient engagement. Health data is made FAIR before being stored in stations controlled by individuals, physicians, hospitals, biobanks, and data repositories.
3. Workshop on building a virtual research environment (VRE) with SURF Research Cloud
SURF Research Cloud is a portal for efficiently building virtual research workplaces. You can use pre-configured workspaces and datasets or add your own datasets. This session is usefull for anyone who wants to use a flexible and customized environment to run powerful applications. It is also a useful kickstarter for current HPC Cloud users.
4. Support4Research: Presentation of various SURF services for Research Data Management
The focus of this session will be on various SURF services for research, particularly successful use cases achieved through collaboration with Maastricht University and the UMC. Services such as SURF Research Access Management, a range of Research Data Management services (including iRODS, Yoda, SURF Research Drive and Data archive) and compute services will be presented. Don’t miss the chance to discover how these services can take your research to the next level!
