Imaging has become a key technique in life science to achieve high-standards research and results. Among the three major components of imaging based research – laboratory experiment, microscopy and image analysis – nearly 60% of life science researchers acknowledged that “image analysis is the most difficult part”. Therefore, training researchers on image data analysis is crucial to ensure that they can get the most out of the data that they generate.
Several initiatives are active in developing training solutions in image data management and analysis Neubias, EuroBioimaging (EuBI), Global BioImaging (GBI) and ELIXIR. GBI/ELIXIR/EuBI/NEUBIAS are jointly organizing a hackaton on image analysis training material re-usability, that aims to bring together training providers from the imaging community and contributors to the ELIXIR Training Platform in order to create a curated collection of training materials on data management and analysis and facilitate their Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Re-usability.
Audience: Bioimage analysts, trainers and developers from NEUBIAS, EuroBioImaging and Global BioImaging, as well as ELIXIR’s Bioschemas and TeSS developers, and anyone willing to contribute, to: (i) foster new collaborations between ELIXIR and key initiatives from the image analysis community, (ii) create a curated collection of training materials on data management and analysis and (iii) facilitate their Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Re-usability.
