Project forum

Project forum engages with European projects to ensure TEHDAS builds on the existing knowledge on the secondary use of health data in Europe.

The third project forum took place on 22 June at 14.00-17.00 CEST online. The discussions focused around the European Commission’s recently published proposal for a regulation on the European health data space.

Selected projects and initiatives presented how the European health data space relates to their future work, and how their work may adapt in response to it. There was an opportunity to discuss the legislative proposal in depth in breakout sessions.
