Improving Health Research in EU through FAIR Data

Project description

Applying the FAIR principles in health research

The EU-funded FAIR4Health project aims to facilitate and encourage the European Union health research community to apply the FAIR principles (to make research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable), and share and reuse their datasets derived from publicly funded research initiatives. The project includes the delivery of an effective outreach strategy at the EU level, a set of guidelines to set the foundations for a FAIR data certification roadmap, an intuitive user centred FAIR4Health platform, as well as demonstrations of the potential impact that the implementation of a FAIR data strategy will have on health outcomes and health and social care research.

Objective

The overall objective of FAIR4Health is to facilitate and encourage European Union Health Research community to FAIRify, share and reuse their datasets derived from publically funded research initiatives through the demonstration of the potential impact that such a strategy will have on health outcomes and health and social care research.
FAIR4Health vision for year 2020 is a vast, open community of EU health research institutions fully engaged to the Horizon 2020 ORD Mandate enhancing their knowledge-based economy and their research excellence thanks to the application of the FAIR data guiding principles. High quality health research and routine care data will be shared and reused in a secure, controlled and legally compliant environment in order to accelerate knowledge discovery while reducing the bias and enhancing the strength and quality of the scientific evidence raised by the FAIR4Health community members. Furthermore, a community of data scientists from both public research institutions and private companies will be attracted to develop advanced analytical solutions able to communicate with the FAIR4Health platform in order to provide data-driven innovative services that will enable a seamlessly application of the new evidence raised into the clinical practice.
FAIR4Health has four specific objectives and will aim to deliver an effective outreach strategy at EU level, a FAIR data certification roadmap, an intuitive user-centered FAIR4Health platform and to demonstrate the potential impact that the implementation of such FAIR data strategy will have in terms of health outcomes and health research.
