The European Commission has kept busy with consultations and legislation proposals on the European Health Data Space, AI, Data Governance and the TEHDAS Joint Action has started its work.
Taking stock of the progresses made so far, the Summit will focus on the acceptance criteria and technical prerequisites for societal trust in the use of health data and the most innovative citizen controlled data sharing governance models.
