Featured Campaign: INNOVATIONS IN DATA SHARING The ASPR Fusion Roundtable administrators are excited to announce our second discussion topic which will focus on data sharing in the public health emergency field. There are an array of pros and cons associated with data sharing in today’s world. Collaboration and sharing can prevent a duplication of efforts and result in more timely and complete data. Advances in technology and connectivity have made the ability to share data easier than ever but that often comes with its own set of complications. We are interested to hear how and what tools and technologies other groups are using to get key timely data, innovatively share information, and what road-blocks you may have run into in your quest for more information.
