The IAVI DataSpace is a capacity strengthening initiative with a focus on bioinformatics and data science to support the Africa-led network of IAVI partners.

The IAVI DataSpace brings together the legacy data collected by IAVI and its clinical research partners through the conduct of various clinical trials and epidemiology studies as well as data from upcoming new studies.

Along with supporting data science initiatives through the use of cloud-based technologies, the IAVI DataSpace aims to enhance analytical services together with capacity building activities in data science across the clinical research centers with which IAVI partners. This will facilitate scientific collaborations with strategic partners to ensure maximum benefit to the vaccine research field.

These data are hosted within a newly built Trusted Research Environment (TRE) — a cloud-based platform for secure and auditable data access and analysis. The IAVI DataSpace TRE is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), thus providing a sustainable model for global data sharing and enabling the long-term support of data science initiatives across Africa and beyond.

The IAVI DataSpace offers:

  • Governed access to a secure cloud-based research environment for data hosting.
  • Individualized and flexible environments to access and analyze data on the cloud.
  • Real-time data integration within the TRE for study participant enrollment, data hosting, and curation.
  • Visualization and interactive exploration of data at population and volunteer levels.
  • A catalogue of studies and integrated data.
  • Access to 100+ publications as well as additional resources and research tools.
  • Access to an e-learning platform and customized training opportunities in bioinformatics and data science.

The IAVI DataSpace is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
