Knowledge-Transfer Strategy will be based on a 2.5-year-long series of courses and training sessions for the staff of the leading institution. These activities will cover the full training that consists of:
1) training on Data Science and Machine Learning fundamentals (i.e. methodological aspects of data exploration, Machine Learning techniques with examples of applications in science and business as well as foundations related to data security and privacy issues in Big Data) realised by WUEB
2) practical training in the implementation of the Machine Learning techniques in biomedicine (i.e. real applications of the Machine Learning in clinical research and in evidence-based medicine with the infrastructural aspects of the medical Big Data and clinical research data management) realised by TUD supported by Fraunhofer Infrastructure.
3) training related to designing and implementation of modern database approaches for Machine Learning problems in the Big Data context realised by UL;
4) training related to data preparation and selection of suitable methods as well as the issues related to formalisation of domain knowledge, applying formalised knowledge for analytical questions to be solved realised by UEP;
The transfer of knowledge will take place in the excellence partners’ institutions as well as within WMU where relevant trainings will be based on real medical data. We are also planning longer scientific visits of the WMU staff in order to become familiar with the functioning of modern centres of excellence within which modern Data Science and database solutions have already been successfully implemented. During these visits, the WMU staff (post-docs) will carry out independent scientific projects resulting in publications in top quality journals. We believe that the implementation of scientific projects during research visits will result in the development of patterns of cooperation between Data Science specialists, life science, and medicine specialists.
Moreover, during the course of the project we are planning lectures for a broader audience. The lectures included in all trainings will be open and not addressed only to the staff of the Department of Heart Diseases but to the staff of the whole Medical University in Wroclaw as well as to wider academic and business communities. These ‘open access activities’ will aim to build a network of contacts between WMU and other institutions, potentially interested in the implementation of the experience acquired during the course of the project in further scientific and business cooperation.
