What are your ideas?
How can we create and use sustainable solutions based on one Health Research Infrastructure?

Share your expertise, experience and ideas. So, if you:

  • are a researcher that benefits from the research infrastructure for high quality research;
  • have a biobank, cohort, registry, dataset or other research collection that profits from an infrastructure;
  • have a biobank, cohort, registry, dataset or other research collection and run into obstacles, like for example the lack of an appropriate infrastructure or data policies;
  • are pursuing proper data stewardship to make research more transparent and FAIR;
  • are involved in quality and privacy aspects of data and samples (e.g. Helpdesk, ELSI = Ethical, Legal, Societal Implications);
  • developed IT-tools, technologies, and equipment that innovate data analyses;
  • have set up an infrastructure, network or consortium to improve aspects of personalised medicine and health;
  • are embedding a personalised medicine approach into healthcare;

then submit a short abstract, explaining how your work can contribute or benefit from Health-RI’s mission by presenting your results and stating what you offer and need from Health-RI. Abstracts have a maximum length of 1/2 A4 and include a title and a contact person.
