Utrecht University has the ambition to pioneer Open Science in Europe. An important aspect is enabling FAIR and open data, but the scientific community is still figuring out how to do this.
Chances and challenges in FAIR, open and safe human data
For human data it can be particularly challenging to balance safety issues with FAIR data. The Utrecht based YOUth cohort aims to be a trailblazer for Open Science. On our YOUth DataDay we will not only share expertise and lessons learned, but also discuss our current challenges in enabling FAIR, open and safe data in the YOUth cohort.

Your data, my data, Youth data. Open Science @Utrecht University. By Prof. Frank Miedema, Chairman Open Science Platform
YOUth is a large-scale, longitudinal cohort study, following children in their behavioural and brain development from pregnancy until early adulthood, with a specific focus on the development of social competence and behavioural control. YOUth researchers collect data with a wide range of instruments from 6,000 babies and children in two different age groups.
A few examples of YOUth data: human bodily material, hours of videos, MRI images, questionnaires, ultrasounds and IQ scores. YOUth encourages and facilitates data sharing, you can read more about their datamanagement plan here. It is one of the leading large-scale, longitudinal human cohorts in FAIR and open data in the Netherlands.
