Tassos Papadiamantis of the University of Birmingham presented NanoCommons’ data management goals and approach. His presentation focused on the need of data management in nanosafety research and how it can cover all aspects of the nanosafety data lifecycle, starting from experimental planning and reaching FAIR data. Data management can also ensure that collected data stay safe, can be easily handled and analysed, and is continuously available via data repositories (FAIR data). Tassos also demonstrated the applicability and benefits of data management at various levels, starting from a single laboratory and ending with an EU project-wide collaboration, and the benefits of automating the experimental workflow and data management process through the use of online lab-books.
