CO-CONNECT Shortlisted in HDR UK's Annual Awards

We are happy to announce that CO-CONNECT has been short-listed for Health Data Research UK’s Annual Award for Reproducibility Recognitions. 

The project has been nominated for the team’s groundbreaking and innovative work with the Cohort Discovery Search Tool, which aims to make COVID-19 research cohorts more accessible, discoverable and searchable to researchers. 

The results will be announced at HDR UK’s 2022 Annual Scientific Conference on Wednesday 14 December. The event will run online from 9:30-17:00.

This award is given to the project or group that best demonstrates HDR UK’s core value of reproducibility – the ability to repeat research, reuse techniques or verify results.

HDR UK asked the health data research community to tell them about how they make their research reproducible or reusable, whether it is by using or creating an open-source software, reporting guidelines or fair data.

Whilst CO-CONNECT’s work has drawn to a close, its legacy lives on. Publicly accessible technical documentation, specialised software and explainer videos are available for other data custodians to independently on-board their research cohorts onto Cohort Discovery. It is hoped that in time the tool will expand to include cohorts for other diseases besides COVID-19.

We wish all nominees the very best of luck.
