What is a project?
A project is a way to categorize data together. A project can contain multiple datasets (called "investigations", what are investigations?).
The project controls
- Who has access to the data
- Who has access to the metadata
- Where and how the data will be stored technically
Starting a project at DataHub needs some personal customization for each use case. Therefore you will be interviewed by one of our data stewards during an intake meeting to find the perfect match between your use case and the services we can offer.
Step 1 - Intake meeting
During this meeting we will also pay attention to your daily routines, the type of data and potential privacy concerns.
An intake form will also be filled in together with you.
Please prepare yourself by already thinking about answers to the following questions:
- Who is the principal investigator?
- What is the title of your project?
- (in case of human study) Do you have informed consent to perform this and/or follow-up studies?
- Which user accounts need to be authorized for the data? Are these internal MUMC+ accounts or do you have external collaborators?
- The amount of data are you planning to generate (in GB's)
Step 2 - Project creation
When the intake is finished and there is a match between both parties, one of our data stewards will:
- create a project environment;
- create user accounts;
- set an authorization level that matches your situation;
- point you to our getting started guides and personally guide you through the system.
