Launch of HANDS on November 4th

October 13, 2015

The launch of the first Handbook for Adequate Natural Data Stewardship (HANDS) in the university medical centres (UMCs) will take place at the conference Empowering Personalized Medicine & Health Research. This practical handbook will assist every researcher in their research. HANDS provides both guidelines and practical tools, infrastructure and expertise for handling research data.

HANDS is a product of the The Netherlands Federation of UMCs (NFU) project Data4lifesciences. This programme aspires to create a research data infrastructure that can be used by doctors and investigators at the UMCs to retrieve clinical & experimental data on all UMC-related patients and make them available to partners in the Netherlands and abroad.
