Goals and tasks
The group was established in order to create a platform for coordination and agreement of interoperability between the proposed data integration centres, to plan concrete steps for achieving interoperability, and to agree corresponding minimum requirements.
The working group members held discussions in physical meetings and conference calls. Three writing groups were formed within the working group to produce a number of documents, and to prepare the ground for an agreement within the national steering committee:
- Writing group for metadata on data availability, analysis options and collaboration options
- Writing group for core data set
- Writing group for interoperability paper summarising key points
Their work is supported by workshops planned and held within the scope of the working group.
Working group chairpersons:
