Community workshop NFDI4Health

The initiative NFDI4Health – National Research Data Infrastructur for Personal Health Data invites to the University of Cologne on June 25, 2019 (11:00 a.m. – 16:30 p.m.).

On Nov. 16th 2018, the GWK (Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz) has decided to fund the establishment of a national research data infrastructure (NFDI) in Germany. Over the next 10 years, up to 30 NFDI consortia will be funded. In this context, ZB MED - Information Centre for Life Sciences, the Leibniz Institute for Prevention Research and Epidemiology - BIPS, and the Institute for Medical Informatics, Statistics and Epidemiology (IMISE, University Leipzig) plan to submit a proposal together with other partners to establish a national research data infrastructure for personal health data.

The community workshop specifically addresses individuals who generate, manage or jointly analyse large volumes of data from clinical, epidemiological or public health studies, as well as health-related registries or administrative healthcare databases. We plan to present the preliminary proposal for a national research data infrastructure for personal health data and enter into a direct exchange with the particpants on the needs of potential users.

Interested persons can register until June 14, 2019:
