EHDEN launches 5th open call for European Data Partners

On 13 October 2021, the EHDEN project launched its 5th open call for European Data Partners. With a budget of €3 million, the call is aimed at partners that wish to receive funding and support in mapping their healthcare data to the OMOP common data model.

This call especially welcomes applications from organisations holding granular data, data with longer term follow-up, patient outcomes, rare/autoimmune/inflammatory conditions, cancer therapies and registries, and medical devices among others. All applications are welcome, with a special call-out to organisations from countries which are not yet (or minimally) represented in the EHDEN Network

The current open call will run from October 13 to November 15 2021, and is the fifth in a series of calls.

Full details on this 5th open call for data partners is available on the EHDEN website.
