Work Package 7

Work Package 7 - Project Management and Dissemination - is led by Carlos Diaz, CEO Synapse, Spain; and Nigel Hughes, EHDEN Project Lead, and Scientific Director, Epidemiology, Janssen Global R&D.

WP7 provides scientific guidance and professional project management for solving trade-offs between scope, time, quality and cost to ensure adequate progress and successful completion of the project. Moreover, it provides guidance for and monitoring of the dissemination of the project results.


One of EHDEN’s key objectives is in fact the creation of an open science community in Europe that supports methods, tools, and skills that promote collaborative research, as well as advocates for the acceptance of RWD in generating RWE.

As our community has reached 187 Data Partners and 64 SMEs across Europe with the open calls through the years, there is the ever-increasing interest in advancing data mapping, and collaboration in network studies. Regular interactions with a community of this size require ongoing coordination and communication. From the EHDEN perspective, a dedicated person (‘Community Manager’) was appointed in order to ensure closer follow-up of the work that Data Partners and SMEs are undertaking. Listen to Montse Camprubi, EHDEN Community Manager, as she talks about this role within the project.
