The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) is conducting the study “Big Data and B2B platforms: the next big opportunity for Europe” whose objective is to analyse how to accelerate the growth of the data-based economy and to support the development of B2B platforms in Europe focusing on two sectors: automotive and healthcare.
Under this study two Pilots will be developed, one for each sector being analysed. The pilot for the healthcare sector will demonstrate an architecture for fair and equal sharing of health data from different sources and different regions. Four workshops are planned during the execution of the healthcare pilot, one for each phase.
This first health data workshop will cover two content blocks: the infrastructure of the data sharing and the opportunities and barriers for the health data market and commercial use. The workshop’s main objective is to introduce the participants to the aims of the health data pilot, present the work done so far on the infrastructure, and most importantly to gather the participants’ views on infrastructure and business opportunities for health data.
