EUCAN-Connect brings together science from Europe and Canada to improve the quality of health care through a more efficient use of data.
The project aims to promote collaboration and multidisciplinary research in high-value cohort and molecular data on a large scale. As a result statistical power will improve and new discoveries are being facilitated. These discoveries will impact human life course and facilitate the translation of the data into personalized diagnostics, treatment and prevention policies.
EUCAN-Connect is a federated FAIR platform enabling large-scale analysis of high-value cohort data connecting Europe and Canada in personalized health. It is a research project funded by the European Commission for five years (2019-2023), within the call topic SC1-BHC-05-2018: “International flagship collaboration with Canada for human data storage, integration and sharing to enable personalised medicine approaches”
