Improving Health Research in EU through FAIR Data

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - FAIR4Health (Improving Health Research in EU through FAIR Data)

Reporting period: 2018-12-01 to 2020-02-29

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 in this year 2020 has already established a real open community of health research institutions in the EU and beyond, with a significant impact on the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and has initiated a considerable collaboration contributing effectively to the European Open Science Cloud strategy.
We are currently working to share access to high-quality data on health research and healthcare data and its re-use in a trust, controlled and legally compliant environment using Privacy-Preserving Data Mining technologies, which will make feasible the project's goal of accelerating knowledge discovery while reducing bias and improving the strength and quality of the scientific evidence raised by the FAIR4Health community.

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, of which it has already succeeded in providing an effective dissemination strategy at the EU level, which continues.
Concerning the other three specific objectives, all are being implemented, one FAIR data certification system with essential collaboration with RDA through HL7, an intuitive FAIR4Health platform under development with proof of concept, and highly advanced clinical and healthcare research protocols.
