VODAN-in-a-Box (ViB) is a composition of multiple FAIR-enabling and open-source services with a single goal: to support gathering electronic Case Report Forms as FAIR Data in a machine-actionable way but without a need to expose or transfer data outside the facility (so-called on-premise solution). As the name suggests, it is related to the activities of GO FAIR’s implementation network called Virus Outbreak Data Network. It aims to promote FAIR Data during the current and also future virus outbreaks. The most significant partner VODAN-Africa, a network of universities and hospitals in Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Tunisia, and Zimbabwe, participated actively in M4M workshops and on proving the concept of ViB solution. Valuable feedback and beneficial experience emerged during the deployment across African countries for both local experts and developers of the solution. Due to the Proof of Concept that we present in this poster, future development and use of VODAN-in-a-Box can be outlined.
