DIGITAL Europe call for proposals: Health data space – federated European infrastructure for cancer images data
The European Commission has published a call for proposals to deploy a federated European infrastructure for cancer images data.
The aim is to establish and deploy a pan-European digital infrastructure facilitating access to cancer images and related patient data in full compliance with the applicable data protection requirements. The infrastructure shall be used by clinicians, researchers and innovators with the ultimate aim of more precise and faster clinical decision-making, diagnostics, treatments and predictive medicine in cancer care.
The Commission plans to make 18 million euro available to support the deployment of the cancer images infrastructure which should be matched by the same amount of funding from the participating organisations. The infrastructure is a central element of the European Cancer Imaging Initiative under Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.
To support the networking and community building, the European Commission will organise an online information and networking session on 8 March 2022. The goal of the event is to raise awareness of the open call and to give the relevant stakeholders an opportunity to identify potential collaborators. The participants will be able to present themselves and their areas of expertise.
Participation is free of charge but registration is mandatory. The Commission will select the final list of speakers. The recording and materials from the event will be available online after the event to allow further collaboration among the interested stakeholders.
