Public wiki page for Tryggve1 project 2014-2017

Tryggve is a three-year project to establish a Nordic platform for collaboration on sensitive data, funded by NeIC and the ELIXIR nodes in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The approach in the project is to utilize and connect existing capacities and services at the Nordic countries. The work is conducted in close collaboration with the user communities and Nordic e-infrastructure providers.

Need for a cross-border collaboration on handling of sensitive biomedical research data became evident from the several suggestions received by NeIC in its call for letters of interest. Tryggve was launched in 2014 to respond to this demand.

The project aims to provide researchers a trusted set of services to share and analyze sensitive biomedical data, across Nordic countries.

The name of the project Tryggve is a Nordic name that stems from Old Norse "tryggr", which was used to mean "trusty, faithful, true, safe", just as the word "trygg" still does in most Nordic languages.

Tryggve Code of Conduct

The Tryggve project supports research utilising sensitive data. We understand the high standards this sets to the services we develop and provide. To underline the commitment to security in all of its work the project has prepared a Tryggve Code of Conduct for service providers.

Service providers adhering to this Code of Conduct effectively state that to the best of their knowledge they comply with the requirements on hosting personal or otherwise sensitive data.

The purpose of the Tryggve Code of Conduct is to make it simpler for a data controller to assess that the service provider’s services are suitable for processing of personal data. The transparency created by the Code will contribute to building an environment of trust between the data controller and a service provider. However, the Code does not replace or constitute a contract between a service provider and the data controller.

The service providers affiliated with Tryggve have published their endorsement of the Tryggve Code of Conduct on their public web sites:
