Accessible and shareable health information is crucial for good healthcare. Scientists of the Scientific Databases and Visualization group (SDBV) at HITS are involved in the project “EU-Standards for Personalised Medicine” (EU-STANDS4PM), which encourages collaborative research to accelerate health science. Funded by the EU program H2020, the three-year project will establish a pan-European expert forum to assess and evaluate national standardization strategies for health data integration and data-driven computer modeling approaches.
On January 1st 2019 the Horizon2020 Coordinating and Support Action “EU-STANDS4PM – A European standardization framework for data integration and data-driven in silico models for personalized medicine” launched activities with support by the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. During the next three years EU-STANDS4PM will initiate an EU-wide mapping process to assess and evaluate strategies for data-driven in silico modelling approaches. A central goal is to develop harmonized transnational standards, recommendations and guidelines that allow a broad application of predictive in silico methodologies in personalized medicine across Europe.
