The EHDEN Consortium launches a second open call for SMEs.

The ambitions of the EHDEN project are high. We aim to standardise more than 100 million patient records across Europe from different geographic areas and different data sources over the coming five years. Mapping of healthcare data to the OMOP-CDM will facilitate the re-use for a variety of purposes, enhancing and accelerating research and healthcare decision-making for global benefit. To this end, EHDEN will create an SME eco-system in Europe that supports data sources and other stakeholders in mapping and using data.

We are now launching the second open call for SMEs to apply for training and certification to convert health data from various formats to the OMOP common data model. This second open call will run from Saturday 1st of February until Saturday 29th of February (17h00 CET).
