TEHDAS, the joint action Towards the European Health Data Space, advances more extensive use of health data across Europe. The project supports the European Commission and Member States in creating a harmonised internal market for health data. Our work has provided elements to the European Commission’s legislative proposal on the health data space and will continue to support further work related to the proposal.

We gather stakeholders from academia, business, public sector and NGOs to the Stakeholder forum on 14 June 2022 in Helsinki, Finland and online.

The forum focuses on the current developments of the European health data space. You will learn about the TEHDAS results related to barriers and enablers of health data use, data quality and infrastructure as well as citizens’ views on sharing health data. In addition to TEHDAS partners, a broad range of stakeholders will share their views.

The event is free of charge but requires prior registration. The forum is held as hybrid event. On-site registration is open until 31 May or until the maximum capacity has been reached.

The forum is an official pre-event of HIMSS European Health Conference also taking place in Helsinki, on 14-16 June 2022. The conference is organised within the framework of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Participating in TEHDAS Stakeholder forum does not require a HIMSS conference ticket.
