Seven Past Nine

Data stewardship and solutions for life sciences. We develop data and information solutions for academic and commercial research. We are experts in designing, collecting, organising and presenting data and offer a unique combination of technical and scientific expertise to build data management solutions that don’t compromise on project requirements.

Affiliations

Partner

We have been added as a new partner to the Horizon 2020 project NanoCommons building a nano-knowledge infrastructure to strengthen community outreach in the form of demonstration cases and provide tools for improving data quality and completeness.

Member

de.NBI the German node of the European life science data and bioinformatics resources network ELIXIR has welcomed us as a member of the Industrial Forum.

Member

We are strengthening innovative research by promoting cooperation and creating synergies in Health & Safety, Data & Sustainability and Enabling Technologies as member of the BioNanoNet Association.

Scientific advisor

We provide our expertise in knowledge management and platform design to the nanoinformatics project NanoSolveIT.

Scientific advisor

Presentations: High-quality data management and sharing

We had the opportunity to present our visions for high-quality data management and sharing at the 2020 U.S.-EU NanoEHS COR Workshop: Bridging Insights and Perspectives (keynote lecture: Working Towards a Harmonized Nanosafety E-Infrastructure for Data and In Silico Tools) and the 2021 Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting as part of the Regulatory Learnings from the EU Flagship Non-animal Toxicology Project EU-ToxRisk session (title: Implementation of a Knowledge Infrastructure: High-Quality Sharing of Data, Test Methods, Results, and Knowledge). Additional presentations will be given at the Slovenian Society of Toxicology conference SloTox (17.6.2021) and the World Congress in Maastricht (23.8.-2.9.2021).

7P9 becomes NanoCommons consortium partner

An amendment and the contracts with the European Commission were signed adding 7P9 as a new partner to the NanoCommons consortium. We are proud to be part of this project and to lead the work package on demonstration case studies evaluating the features of the NanoCommons infrastructure including feedback from all stakeholders from the nanosafety community.

Contributions to two scientific papers

7P9 contributed as main authors to two scientific papers addressing important issues in nanosafety data management. In the first, “Metadata Stewardship in Nanosafety Research: Community-Driven Organisation of Metadata Schemas to Support FAIR Nanoscience Data”, describes how data management practices have to be changed to become an effort of all shareholders from data producers to data curators and managers to finally data users. The second, “Can an InChI for Nano Address the Need for a Simplified Representation of Complex Nanomaterials across Experimental and Nanoinformatics Studies?”, has the goal to establish a standard way to represent nanomaterials in the form of a line notation encoding important properties like constitution, shape and size.
