TEHDAS Stakeholder forum 2023

TEHDAS Stakeholder forum 2023

The TEHDAS joint action invites experts, professionals and decision-makers in health sector across Europe to the final event of the project to learn about the results and to discuss the development of European health data space. The hybrid event will take place on 14 June 2023 in Helsinki, Finland and online.

  • June 14, 2023 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
  • Messukeskus Helsinki Expo & Convention Centre & online
  • #TEHDASforum, #healthdata

At the forum, we will focus on the current developments of the European health data space. We will learn about the TEHDAS results on data quality and infrastructure, data governance, the citizens’ views on data use, as well as the sustainability of the health data space. We will also broaden the discussion from the European health data space to global health perspectives. In addition to TEHDAS partners, a broad range of stakeholders will share their views.

TEHDAS, the joint action Towards the European Health Data Space, is coming to an end. TEHDAS project has been carried out by 25 European countries since 2021. Connecting and engaging European stakeholders from academia, business, public sector and NGOs has been a priority for TEHDAS.

The project advances more extensive use of health data across Europe. The European health data space (EHDS) will promote the development of health systems, and the availability, efficiency and sustainability of services. Research and innovation will benefit from improved access to data.

Our work provided elements to the European Commission’s legislative proposal on the EU’s health data space published in May 2022. Towards the end of the project, we will give recommendations to facilitate successful implementation of EHDS. TEHDAS supports the European Commission’s aim in creating a harmonised internal market for health data.

The event is free of charge. The forum is held as hybrid event and there is a limited capacity for participation in Helsinki.

The forum is an official side event of Radical Health Festival Helsinki, a digital health conference which takes place in Helsinki on 12-14 June 2022.

The recording of the forum is available until 3 July 2023.
