Modern medical research is heavily relying on the collection and analysis of an enormous amount of heterogeneous data as they are for example generated by biomolecular high-throughput analysis. These data can only be used for particular research questions and for therapy decisions if the data are integrated, semantically interoperable and of high quality. Research projects in the field of the EU-Societal Challenge 1 “Health, demographic change and wellbeing” in Horizon 2020 will have to address the provision of a sophisticated medical informatics research infrastructure to be able to perform innovative research. Therefore, it is the aim of this project to establish a Danube Medical Informatics Network (DMIN) and to prepare joint proposals for Horizon 2020 together with clinical partners in the participating countries. DMIN will, among other activities, conduct workshops to establish the network, analyse local regulations for data sharing, and develop recommendations for metadata structures in biomedical research projects.
