Interactive Workshop: If you want to go far go together – Collaborative research supported by NanoCommons transnational access

Activity details The H2020 research e-infrastructure project NanoCommons is fostering collaborative research by trying to bring the nanosafety community together to work hands-on on the establishment of ways to make data and software platforms, developed in the different projects, to talk to each other. In order to give this a major push, we are now organising a…

Preview of upcoming NanoCommons training activities

Authors: Martin Himly Contributors: Marvin Martens, Haralambos Sarimveis, Philip Doganis, Iseult Lynch  Building on the hugely successful set of webinars and online training events that NanoCommons ran in 2020 as part of our adaption to the Covid-19 travel restrictions, a similar series of virtual training events and hackathons is planned for 2021.  While the exact…

Integrating literature citing the JRC representative industrial nanomaterials and introducing the Nanomaterials InChI (NInChI)

Authors: Egon Willighagen and Iseult Lynch Text mining for (nano)materials is far from trivial. The proprietary SpringerNature Nano database extracts information for many materials, but it is not easy to find materials of a certain size in this database. Use of identifiers in text, for example as compact identifiers1, supports text mining. In a small…

Two ways of data integration into the NanoCommons Knowledge Base

Authors: Thomas Exner, Dieter Maier, Tassos Papadiamantis and Iseult Lynch In order to support as many projects as possible with their data management needs and become a one-stop shop to search and retrieve all available nanosafety related data, NanoCommons offers two ways to integrate project data into the NanoCommons knowledge base and supports them via…

Overview of open licensed datasets

Authors: Egon Willighagen The difference between a dataset and a database is not unlike food ingredients and a dinner. Databases are like the ready-to-eat dinners, sometimes in a fancy restaurant (read: the database has an application programming interface), sometimes at home (nice website). Datasets are what you need to cook the dinner, the ingredients. And…
