Entrepreneurs Have Spoken: Building A European Health Data Space Fit for Startups
Member News

Global startup communities came together and sent an open letter to Members of the European Parliament highlighting their key asks for building an innovation-friendly European Health Data Space. The letter is co-signed by 12 startup associations and includes 3 key asks from policy makers to ensure the file fulfills its promise to startups.

Startup Communities welcome the European Commission’s proposal for the creation of a European Health Data Space (EHDS), as it could become the runway for startups to scale life-changing innovations across the EU. It is an opportunity to introduce common standards and create an environment that could boost Europe’s
global competitiveness in medical research and innovation. Startups are most often smaller economic players – navigating complex regulatory barriers requires both time and resources. The current EU health data ecosystem differs across Member States, each having different levels of data centralization and standards of
interoperability, which comes at a cost for startups. The EHDS promises to lay the ground-rules for harmonisation by creating well-governed pathways to access cross border health data.
Startup communities are sharing three key recommendations to make the EHDS fit for purpose for patients, healthcare professionals and innovators.
