HealthyCloud: Joint Workshop of Strategic Projects for the Health Research & Innovation Cloud

On May 18th 2021, HealthyCloud organises a workshop with the aim of bringing together European projects and initiatives working towards making secure cross-border health data sharing a reality. Key representatives from EOSC-LifeB1MGPHIRI and TEHDAS Joint action will be invited to share lessons learned, expected outcomes and best ways to tackle common challenges.

The purpose of the workshop is to allow these projects to align their activities by identifying potential synergies and promoting coordination, while avoiding overlap between project objectives. In addition, selected stakeholder representatives from the public sectornational and EC policymakersregulators and ethics committeesacademiaindustrypatients and citizens will be invited to join. They will bring into the discussions specific information from the communities they represent and highlight challenges of health data sharing they would like to see addressed within a pan-European Health Research and Innovation Cloud.

The main discussion points and conclusions of this workshop will be presented in the eHealth Summit Portugal (1-2 June 2021, virtual) in the track dedicated to secondary use of real-world data.

The objective of HealthyCloud is to generate a number of guidelines, recommendations and specifications that will enable distributed health research across Europe in the form of a Ready-to-implement Roadmap. This roadmap together with the feedback gathered from a broad range of stakeholders will be the basis to produce the final HealthyCloud Strategic Agenda for the European Health Research and Innovation Cloud (HRIC).

In HealthyCloud, EGI leads the task on the analysis of the existing computation infrastructures with special view on health research, and will propose a reference architecture for computational services to serve the Health Research and Innovation Cloud ecosystem. 


The HealthyCloud project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement Nº 965345.
