Interconnecting innovation ecosystems for common European data space in Health

Project description

The future of health and care data in Europe

The European Health Data Space is designed to empower individuals across the EU to fully exercise their rights over their health data and pave the way for innovative medicine and healthcare of the future. Comprised of rules, common standards and practices, people will be able to easily access and share these data, while retaining greater control over them, fully in line with the EU approach to data protection. In this context, the EU-funded EDAH will foster the dialogue and development towards more inclusive, dynamic and (gender) diverse and interconnected innovation ecosystems. EDAH brings together four networks representing broad innovation ecosystems, that have for many years been working to advance the use of health data.

Objective

The aim of the project is to foster the dialogue and development towards more inclusive, dynamic, (gender) diverse and interconnected innovation ecosystems in Europe to reach the European common data space in health. The joint action plan to be developed in the context of the project is oriented at overcoming the current deployment gap of digital health in Europe and to unlock the power of health data for innovative medicine and healthcare of the future, enabling new scientific discoveries, innovative commercial health products and services, all in all resulting in more efficient prevention and treatment of illnesses and ensuring a better quality of life in Europe and globally.

The consortium includes four clusters/networks, all representing broad innovation ecosystems, that have for many years been working to advance the secondary use of health data and creation of the common European Health Data Space. This includes Biocat, BioRegion of Catalonia (Biocat; coordinating country: Spain), Council of European BioRegions (CEBR; based in Belgium), Health Cluster Portugal (HCP, Portugal) and ScanBalt network (SB; Estonia). The consortium takes leadership in coordinating the project activities but a wide range of clusters, bioregions and wider ecosystem stakeholders will be engaged in the project based on the joint effort of the core partners.
