The BD4BO General Assembly is organized on 20 November 2018 in Brussels. The meeting will take place in the auditorium of Arts 56, in Brussels from 9:30 until 17:00 hrs.
The HARMONY Alliance will be represented by project leads Guillermo Sanz of HULAFE and Pam Bacon of Celgene International.
BD4BO stands for BigData for Better Outcomes. This IMI programma was launched in 2016, with a planned time-frame of about 10 years. Its overall objective is to maximize the potential of Big Data in European healthcare, and to promote innovative methods for harmonizing, accessing, and analysing data. The BD4BO Programme comprises several disease-specific projects focusing on hematologic malignancies (HARMONY), Alzheimer’s disease (ROADMAP), cardiovascular diseases (BIG DATA@HEART), and prostate cancer PIONEER, with potential studies of others at a later date. These disease-specific projects are supported by the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) DO->IT, as an overarching coordination structure, and the European Health Data Network (EHDN) project which will be a federated network of relevant data sources. The outcomes, project examples, and results of the Programme will be available for stakeholders and the public via BD4BO’s website and other communication channels.
The focus of the BD4BO General Assembly will be on securing the sustainability of DO->IT networks and outputs.
