Health Data Research UK, UK Research and Innovation, and Administrative Data Research UK have launched a £2 million fund to explore, develop and progress a UK-wide digital research infrastructure – focusing on the design to connect sensitive data from across research councils.
The programme aims to attracts 10 ‘Sprint Exemplar Projects’ that will inform its DARE UK programme on developing a ‘Trusted and Connected Data and Analytics Research Environment’.
HTN also recently reported on North East and North Cumbria ICS’s ‘Trusted Research and Evaluation Environment strategy’ that aims to support joint collaboration between health, care and academic institutions, using governed processes and a data platform.
The ICS said the strategy is to provide the capability and data platform to ‘support evidence based transformation’, across the region. The ICS noted its four strategic outcomes in the paper; to develop public and partner trust and assurance on use of data; cultivate health, care and academic expertise; deliver projects that are focussed on improving population health and wellbeing; and to provide a nationally assured, safe, scalable and sustainable capability to support the regions digital development and economic growth.
