Columbia Research Data Symposium 2013


A Research Data Symposium was held at Columbia University on Wednesday, February 27. Here are a couple of projects that stood out while trolling tweets and @robincamille’s notes .

Two innovate startups that especially stood out to me:
Both are novel approaches to sharing research data and even, in Nanohub's case, analysis software. Nanohub is building a more community-focused platform for nanotechnology researchers. Figshare, backed by for-profit MacMillan publishing company, is open to all disciplines.
Both strike me as repository platforms that people might actually want to use.
