Beyond the digital divide: sharing research data across developing and developed countries

This project seeks to understand current data-sharing practices (formal and informal) among scientists in developing countries and identify how practices differ in working with different types of data including non-clinical human data, non-human data and in silico (computer) data. Intensive observation will enable researchers to compare and contrast data sharing practices among sub-Saharan African laboratories in order to highlight areas of similarity and dissimilarity and critically assess the institutional, national and international regulatory environments in which these issues arise. The project aims to develop these observations with regard to the collaborative research, funding and governance of research protocols.
