UKRI trusted and connected Data and Analytics Research Environments, Phase 1

Lead Research Organisation: Health Data Research UK (HDR UK)

Abstract

The UK Trusted and Connected Data and Analytics Research Environments, Phase 1 project involves an extensive scoping phase ("Design and Dialogue") which will involve extensive community engagement activities across the UKRI research communities for gathering detailed socio-technical requirements for the specification of hardware, software and services; and for co-designing technical, federation and accreditation standards and governance frameworks which meet the needs of data controllers, users, and the public.

Technical Summary

The UK Trusted and Connected Data and Analytics Research Environments, Phase 1 project involves an extensive scoping phase (""Design and Dialogue"") to define the socio-technical requirements for a novel national federated digital infrastructure to establish the next generation of Trusted Research Environments (TREs) (i.e. secure, cloud-enabled environments for advanced analytics) - where researchers can safely:
• store (as and when required), but mainly process, link and analyse potentially identifiable/sensitive data (generally, unconsented ‘FAIRified’ data from different modalities/sources) at UK scale; and
• have programming access to bring advanced analytical algorithms (e.g. AI/ML algorithms) to the data; but also, export software/algorithms and analyses results developed and produced within this environment.
