Health Data Title

About the Event

In February 2020, the European Commission published the European Data Strategy, which emphasised the need to grow European digital infrastructure capabilities. The EU plans to invest €4bn-6bn into building new data infrastructures: €2bn is envisaged to come from the EU budget, and the Member States will contribute the rest. Part of this budget will be invested in the creation of data spaces in strategic sectors, including health. The purpose of such data spaces will be to support the development of national electronic health records, boost cross-border exchanges of data, and improve the interoperability of health data to support research.

The Commission will first propose a legislative framework for establishing health data spaces that will lay down provisions for governance structures that allow for access to, and exchange of, health data to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.

In this context, Forum Europe and HPE will organise a high-level roundtable analysing data spaces in healthcare and discuss concrete use cases. The discussion will allow policymakers to exchange views with stakeholders and obtain evidence-based insights from industry, health professionals, and researchers and discuss the most important elements that need to be considered when designing health data flows in Europe. It will also include the presentation of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) models (swarm learning) which are the next-frontier for health data spaces and will showcase how the insights can be generated without moving the data collected at the edge.

Further information will be released shortly, but in the meantime you may register below. Attendance is free.
