The overall goal of the Data Infrastructure Support Core (DISC) is to provide a central coordinating hub for data collection, data management, and data delivery processes within Stress in Action. DISC provides central ICT support, conducts all procurement and maintenance of apps and wearables, and trains SiA members in standardized data collection and management processes.

In phase I, the DISC catalogues the existing ambulatory datasets and provides meta-data annotation. They create a Data Management Plan, a data codebook for the new cohort enrichment data, and procedures for collection, cleaning and (long-term) data storage.

In phase II, they will create the Data Governance Framework and the Standard Operational Procedures for the new data collection.
