On 31 January, DCMN researchers and collaborators gathered to talk about big data, as a means to work towards Open Science. During this meeting, opened by Guillen Fernandez, several big data sets and examples of methodologies were presented.

The presentations provided a glimpse of the huge amount of data collected from extensive collaborations, and are now (freely) available for potential reuse. The meeting ended with an interactive panel discussion during which important issues regarding the implementation and practical do’s and don’ts were addressed. Although many challenges still have to be overcome or still need to be addressed, the organizing committee felt that this meeting leads to increased awareness, and stimulates collaboration amongst DCMN researchers. Andre Marquand closed the meeting by presenting the DCMN Big data repository, an overview of datasets from DCMN investigators and their (inter)national collaborators that can be shared. This overview, that has been a result of many interviews with principal investigators, can be found on Donders Intranet.
