The Health Research Infrastructure initiative (Health-RI) aims to establish an interconnected data infrastructure for Dutch personalised medicine and health research. It is a joint initiative of DTL, ELIXIR-NL, BBMRI-NL, EATRIS-NL, NFU, and Health~Holland, supported by a large group of stakeholders in the health domain. Many DTL partners are actively involved in Health-RI, for instance in the Health-RI Data Interest Group.

Health-RI will interconnect a wide range of resources, including research facilities, biobanks, and data collections, resulting in more effective health research. Health-RI’s ultimate goal is improving personalised health and medicine (i.e., tailored prevention, diagnosis, and prognosis of diseases). The initiative has been selected for the KNAW ‘Agenda for Large-scale Research Facilities’.
