The presentation will showcase how a centre for health data can operate based on an ethical, juridical, and secure point of view and enlighten the risks and advantages of cross border health data sharing.

About the event
Stockholm Region is one of Europe’s strongest life science areas and has via the Stockholm Centre for Health data thorough experience in the area of health data sharing. However, sharing of health data or data in general requires regulation, and the development of common European regulatory framework is influencing not only on a European level but also on a national and regional level. Therefore, the European Health Data Space (EHDS) is of great importance for the development of the quality of healthcare within the greater Stockholm region, regarding both the primary and secondary use of data.

In addition, the regulation of EHDS is an area that the current Swedish presidency of the European Council has included in the Swedish presidency programme as one of the issues to be addressed in the area of health and medical care. The presidency has underlined the importance of learning from the COVID-19 pandemic.

EIT Health was established in 2015, as a knowledge and innovation community of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). EIT Health exist to build an ecosystem where fresh thinking in healthcare can thrive. Their network connects world-class organisations across Europe from the three worlds of business, research and education. EIT Health is joining together a community of innovators dedicated to improving the lives of people and patients.
