Developing a long-term DDLS strategy

In June 2021, a first version of the DDLS strategy was launched. It was developed by the DDLS steering group with input from the funder Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation (KAW) and the 11 participating organizations, SciLifeLab Board, Management group, Operations office and Data Centre. Since then, a dialogue with stakeholders has been ongoing. On September 14, 2021 program stakeholders were invited to provide their views at an open digital meeting, The future of life science is data-driven – DDLS update and strategy”.

Based on the contributions and feedback from stakeholders as well as the International Advisory Board of SciLifeLab, a revised and final long-term strategy for the DDLS program will be developed and published in early 2022.
