OpenTox Webinar: Trust in cloud-based Safety Assessment
This virtual meeting will include a perspective by Daniel Burgwinkel (KRM Competence Center) followed by a short discussion session.
Cloud-based platforms speed up the process of developing products and open new opportunities for Safety Assessments and the collaboration between research partners and regulators. On the other hand concerns about cyber-security, tampered data integrity and reproducibility issues arise. The talk gives an overview of the challenges of data integrity, data provenance and reproducibility and proposes a set of principles and best practices that can be applied in addition to the FAIR principles of the research community (findability, accessibility, interoperability and reuse of digital assets). As an example, the design of a cloud-based testing platform is presented, which utilizes blockchain technology to offer “trust as a service”.
