OpenTox Europe 2014 presentation: "Open PHACTS: solutions and the foundation"

CC-BY 2.0 by Dmitry Valberg.
Where the OpenTox Europe 2013 presentation focused on the technical layers of Open PHACTS, this presentation addressed a key knowledge management solution to scientific questions and the Open PHACTS Foundation. I stress here too, as in the slides, that the presentation is on behalf of the full consortium!

For the knowledge management, I think Open PHACTS did really interested work in the field of "identity" and am happy to have been involved in this [Brenninkmeijer2012]. The platform implementation is, furthermore, based on the BridgeDb platform, that originated in our group [VanIersel2010]. The slides outline the scientific issues addressed by this solution:

PS, many more Open PHACTS presentations are found here.
