ScanBalt Digital Forum: Towards a common European health data space in times of COVID-19 – bottlenecks and solutions from a cluster perspective
Event Date: 4 September 2020
Registration for the ScanBalt Forum 2020 is now open.
We invite European cluster organizations to join the discussion on the European common health data space at the digital conference on 4 September 2020 at 10:00 – 18:00 CET.
The fight against the current COVID-19 pandemic highlights the importance of closer digital data exchange in healthcare in Europe. The German EU Council Presidency thus emphasizes the significance of advancing a European health data space.
The Baltic Sea cluster ScanBalt will address this issue at its annual ScanBalt forum on 4 September 2020 (web conference). The forum is part of the Federal Ministry of Health’ associated programme within Germany’s EU Council Presidency and will be opened by Dr Thomas Steffen, State Secretary in the German Ministry of Health. Clusters from all over Europe, consisting of universities, hospitals, research institutions, pharmaceutical and medical device companies and start-ups, are invited to present best practice examples in order to derive recommendations for the creation of a single European data space. These recommendations will be at the heart of a joint declaration, which will be handed over to the German EU Council Presidency for use at the central European Health Data Conference on 11 November 2020.
