Workpackage 2 develops data harmonisation efforts to make cancer research more reproducible across all Member States. It will simplify complex data queries and provide empirical evidence of the interoperability methodology for future studies. Specifically, it will create a model for clinical information retrieval across common nodes; provide guidelines on models, metadata, terminology and provenance; demonstrate proof-of-concept of harmonised data models, terminologies and tools, as well as develop methods to support data aggregation.

Like this, the workpackage will provide mechanisms to facilitate:

  • Clinical metadata mining, archiving and interoperability
  • Cancer multi-omics and imaging data interoperability
  • Federated discoverability for assembling virtual cancer cohorts
