Towards a Health research and innovation Cloud: Capitalising on data sharing initiatives in health research

OBJECTIVES

  • Design an implementation roadmap and strategic agenda for a one-stop-shop health research and innovation cloud in Europe
  • Overcoming ethical, legal and administrative barriers of a borderless sharing of human data in Europe, to enable efficient support for research with full endorsement of citizens’ rights and interests.
  • Provide guidelines and best practices to enable accessing, using and reusing health data for better research outcomes across Europe
  • Drive the adoption of mechanisms for the sustainable use of European computational capabilities including both Cloud and High Performance Computing

ROLES

  • Identify computational needs to enable data-centric health research in an ethically sound and legally compliant manner
  • Facilitate the mechanisms for distributed data access and analytics
  • Capture functional requirements for a real-world research question (on atrial fibrillation) whose answer require the linkage of health research data, clinical data and administrative data
