NIH Seeking Input on Draft Strategic Plan for Data Science
To capitalize on the opportunities presented by advances in data science, the NIH is developing a Strategic Plan for Data Science. NIH published a Request for Information (RFI) to seek input on a draft strategic plan from stakeholders including members of the scientific community, academic institutions, the private sector, health professionals, professional societies, advocacy groups, patient communities, as well as other interested members of the public. The draft plan identifies overarching goals, strategic objectives, and implementation tactics for promoting the modernization of the NIH-funded biomedical data science ecosystem. Responses to the RFI are due by April 2, 2018.
