Radboud university medical center, Erasmus MC and University Medical Center Utrecht will work together to bring the Digital Research Environment to the next phase. The ultimate goal: to make this online environment for the secure and fast management, analysis, sharing and storage of research data a national and international success.
The Deans of the three university medical centers (umc’s) confirm this in a recently signed Memorandum of Understanding, in which they mark the start of a consortium called accessible network Digital Research Environment alliance, or anDREa. Under the banner of this anDREa consortium, the umc's will closely collaborate to make the Digital Research Environment widely available. "Erasmus MC and UMC Utrecht have started the implementation of the Digital Research Environment within their own organization. At Radboudumc we have been working on this for some time now: we have over 800 users at the moment. Parallel to this, we are working at full speed on the right legal form for this partnership. There is already a lot of interest in the Digital Research Environment from parties from the Netherlands and abroad, so now it is time to really accelerate our efforts", says anDREa manager Ariaan Siezen. Radboudumc Dean Jan Smit adds: "We are proud to now have this formal agreement with our partners, Erasmus MC and UMC Utrecht. Together, we can continue to develop this Radboudumc-built research environment, and with much more power than we could bring on our own."
About the DRE
The Digital Research Environment (DRE) is an online environment in which researchers can manage, analyze, share and store their data. In a way that is secure and complies with the latest regulations. Radboudumc is the founding father of the DRE.
