Welcome to the TBnet webinar on August 31, 16:00 CET!
Title: Building a TBnetHub to facilitate meta-analyses, datasharing & datalinkage from epidemiological studies & study centres.
Moderator: Berit Lange Experts: Veronika Jäger, Manuela Harries
Join us on Zoom!
When: August 31, 2023, at 16:00 CET.
Meeting ID: 856 6310 1880
In this webinar we want to discuss the setting up of a data harmonization, linkage and sharing platform called TBnetHub. We will present the idea and basis for the infrastructure, its building-blocks and how we have previously used similar infrastructures to harmonize and link datasets from different epidemiological studies to inform infectious disease modelling. We would then like to discuss with you adaptations and changes so that the final infrastructure is useful and of benefit to all TBnet members. We would give some inputs and would hope for a fruitful discussion with the experts and you.
Berit Lange: Building TBnetHub, structures & linkage to existing research infrastructures of infectious disease epidemiology in Europe (10-15 min)
Manuela Harries: Harmonizing data collection and linking data rapidly across epidemiological studies - demonstration of a use case (10 min)
