Call for Ecsite members to join a Horizon project on Health & Research Data as Affiliated Entities

Note: Affiliated Entities were previously known as Linked Third Parties

About the proposal

Ecsite is involved in a new proposal that responds to the Call HORIZON-HLTH-2023-TOOL-05-04 Better integration and use of health-related real-world and research data, including genomics, for improved clinical outcomes.

This is a one-stage call. The project is coordinated by LUXEMBOURG INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. Ecsite is a project partner.

The project will design and develop essential building blocks of anonymisation, synthetic data generation and multiparty computation in an integrated platform to extend the data sharing abilities of health data hubs. It will enable the bridging between diverse data providers and citizen-generated health data. One of the expected outcomes of the project is to address the issue of citizens’ trust in the sharing and re-use of health data for research and healthcare purposes. This is a four-year project

If selected, the project is expected to start in January 2024.

Ecsite and the Coordinator of the proposal are looking for three organisations to join as Affiliated Entities.

Role of the Affiliated Entity

  • To co-create and implement science engagement activities with researchers and citizens such as Games (Playdecide, etc.), science cafes, small-scale science exhibitions or exhibits, etc. on themes around health data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, ethics
  • To create a science engagement toolkit for museums, science centres and other science engagement organisations, research centres and companies, to be used as a playful tool to choose and implement successful participatory activities engaging citizens and multiple stakeholders on health and data issues.
