OpenRiskNet Open e-Infrastructure to Support Data Sharing, Knowledge Integration and in silico Analysis and Modelling in Risk Assessment

OpenRiskNet is a 3-year EU Horizon 2020 project starting on December  1st 2016 that will develop and deploy an integrated, secure, permanent,  service driven and sustainable infrastructure for data managing, data  sharing, processing, analysis, information mining and modelling as well  as workflow development and sharing, visualisation and reporting to  serve communities in the areas of toxicology, risk assessment and  chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and nanomaterial product development  including safe-bydesign aspects at an early stage. This e-infrastructure  will support all aspects of risk assessment mentioned above by allowing  for the integration of all toxicology­related data sources, for the  implementation and execution of processing and analysis pipelines.

OpenRiskNet will address the challenges arising from the  fragmentation of the data and the insufficient harmonization of user  guidance by creating application programming interfaces (APIs) including  technical and semantic interoperability layers, containerizing the  databases and computational tools, and integrating the micro­services  into virtual environments (VEs) allowing for deployment of personal and  multi­tenant instances of this flexible, secure and high­performance  e-infrastructure.
