Open Call DS-03-2016: Increasing Digital Security of Health Related Data on a Systemic Level

European Commission Proposals would provide a holistic approach to address challenges of secure storage and exchange (including cross-border) of data, protection and control over personal data, and security of health related data gathered by mobile devices combined with the usability of the eHealth solutions. Proposals should build on existing solutions or developments (openNCP, projects DECIPHER, EPSOS, STORK and others) where possible. Development and use of techniques of homomorphic encryption could be considered. Proposals would also analyse the legal applicable frameworks and societal aspects in the context of deployment of the solution. Existing European and national law including data protection rules, right to be forgotten, giving consent as well as recognized standards have to be respected. The operational solution should be piloted in three different Member States or associated countries. Technologically, it should be easily adaptable in other countries wishing to use it.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU between EUR 3 and 5 million would allow these areas to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Expected Impact:

  • Better acceptance of eHealth solutions among patients
  • Encouraging Member States to widen the use of eHealth
  • Ensuring the right of patients to cross-border healthcare
  • Supporting the development of European legal and operational standards for cross-border data exchange and patient privacy protection
  • Better protection against unauthorised use of personal data, breach of confidentiality and cybercrime
  • Increasing the awareness of stakeholders, private and public ones, on the current level of data security.
  • Definition of clear architectures that will promote interoperability between eHealth solutions

Deadline Date: 16-02-2016 17:00:00 (Brussels local time)

Type of action: RIA Research and Innovation action.
