EMIF Data Catalogue extends access to European Medical Research Community

Monday 16 January 2017

On 16 January, the European Medical Information Framework (EMIF) announced it has extended access to its EMIF Data Catalogue, making it available to others within the research community. This development is linked to its mission to improve identification, access and assessment, and the (re)use of health data within the European Union.

The Catalogue will allow users to explore the population-based and cohort-derived data sources, who are partners within EMIF and have consented to provide such information for the purposes of researchers wanting to explore potential data partners for studies. Currently 14 population-based and 46 cohort-based data partners are contained within the Catalogue, from across 14 countries.

The Catalogue in its current form provides initial information, but EMIF expects to see further development and expansion of capabilities to assist users to investigate data sources.

This is the first EMIF platform tool with wider access, but in the coming, final year of the programme there are plans to deploy platforms for researchers to be able to go beyond the Catalogue phase, right through suitability evaluation and ultimately conducting studies with data source collaborators.

EMIF hopes that extending access the first tool of the EMIF platform in this way will be a significant asset to the EU research community, and very much looks forward to its continued development and use, eventually within a broader research platform and communities.

EMIF is an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) programme, operating under agreement number 115372.
