The identification of tumors by algorithms that employ digitalised tissue samples shows the relevance of data (digital images in this case) in medical research. A news article describing the project at the Medizinischen Universität Graz under the leadership of IDE@S project partner Prof. Kurt Zatloukal has appeared in the Austrian newspaper Der Standard.
IDE@S has appeared in the media during February 2021:
Due to trademark protection the project changed its original name in December 2020: the project is now officially known as IDE@S - Innovative Data Environment @ Styria.
Dr Sarah Stryeck is since January 2021 the new project coordinator. We thank Dr Tony Ross-Hellauer (Open and Reproducible Research Group at TU Graz) for his leadership in the first months of the project!
TU Graz organized a workshop on Standards towards an active and sustainable data exchangeon 14th June 2021 including a discussion from quality managers, technical writers, data management experts and various researchers and users, the summary can be found here.
The last workshopon Secure data maangement for cross-organizational data exchange was held in May on advancing topics on services and technical infrastrutcture, a report can be downloaded here.
IDE@S advisory board meet on March 30th for the first time. The project was presented to the board members, followed by a discussion of its goals and the interests and expectations of the board.
Around 20 experts from research institutions and businesses in Styria participated in the workshop Multi-stakeholder initiatives in Styrian data ecosystem on March 25th, moderated by Claire Jean-Quartier (TU Graz). The discussion is part of the work to be carried out in work package 3, which seeks to map the available resources and explore the desired further development of the technical infrastructure for a collaborative data environment. A short summary of the workshop can be found here; a full account of the session is available in German.

The full presentation is available here(in German). In the subsequent panel discussion, Manuela Weissenbeck (Land Steiermark), Patrick Ratheiser (LeftshiftOne) and Bernd Tschapeller (Joanneum Research) under moderation by project coordinator Sarah Stryeck described the importance of data in their everyday tasks and the evolution and challenges that can be expected in the future.
FH JOANNEUM opened the series of workshops in IDE@S on November 27th with a focus group of experts on Humane resources: Challenges in data science & cloud computing in tomorrow's job market, moderated by team members Mag. Raphaele Raab and Mag. Hildegard Liebl.
