DARE UK launched in July to consult on the requirements for a federated, digital infrastructure for sensitive data research. It aims to explore approaches for Trusted Research Environments with an aim to ensure efficient sharing, linkage and advanced analysis of data in an ethical and secure manner.
The call is looking for technology that can help improve data discovery, improve metadata management or support application programming interfaces, such as for the development of federated analytics, data visualisation or automation. It’s also seeking support for the development of privacy enhancing technology, in line with its outline on trusted research environment processes.
Establishing best practice is a key element of the programme, aiming to develop information governance and ethics, standards, training and career development and public involvement.
The closing date for applications is 11 November 2021, with projects to run from January 2022 to August 2022.
