Launch of the HealthData@EU Pilot’s External Advisory Board 

April 15, 2023

A successful call for participation
The call for participation to the HealthData@EU Pilot’s External Advisory Board, circulated at the end of 2022, has been a testimony of the wide interest for the project’s activities. More than 250 applications were submitted in a little under a month, from more than 20 countries and a variety of stakeholders: research and teaching institutions, the industry, public authorities, patients and citizens organisations…
The list of applicants was reviewed by the Work Package members, with input from the Coordinator and the European Commission, to select a final list of 49 members, validated by the project Steering Committee. The activities of the External Advisory Board were then officially kicked-off at the end of March with a presentation of the project and  its stakes.

What is next ? 
The External Advisory Board Members have been allocated between the different Work Packages, depending on their respective expertise. The WP-specific exchanges will be launched in the months of April and May and will continue throughout the project’s lifetime. The members will be consulted at key stages of the project, on the most important aspects of the WP’s outputs, to contribute to shaping the future European Health Data Space.
