Open Data in Health: how knowledge may generate trust

Mariachiara Tallacchini, Monica Gemo, Antonia Rana, Estefania Aguilar

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Developed within the context of the JRC project on Trust in Digital Interactions (TRUDI), the Workshop on “Open Data in Health: how knowledge may generate trust” (Ispra, 18 November 2014) aimed to investigate some general issues surrounding Open Data in the EU normative perspective, reflect on institutional and civic imaginaries about Open Data, and identify how trust between institutions and citizens can be improved in health matters. The workshop encompassed three sessions, each asking a different set of questions: a) What is the current state-of-the-art on Open Data, and what does Open Data in health mean? b) Are European policies on Privacy and Open Data conflicting or complementary? c) Do existing portals for Open Data meet citizens’ expectation and which role can be envisaged for the media? This report provides a summary of the topics and arguments presented at the Workshop and offers some recommendations in the still unfolding field of Open Data in Health.
