Panel II: A European Health Data Space Fit for Startups
Any entrepreneur is no more than an idea and a data-set away from a new startup. Access to secondary health data is a key enabler in the development of innovative healthcare solutions. The EHDS provides the opportunity to introduce common standards to facilitate an environment that empowers startups and other digital health communities - but how can we ensure the EHDS fulfills its promise for startups?
