The two training networks are called HELICAL and PROTECT. HELICAL stands for “Health Data Linkage for Clinical Benefit” and incorporates a consortium of 14 beneficiaries and 13 partner organisations across Europe with a total budget of €4.05m. It is led by Prof Mark Little. Its main goal is to link healthcare record, environmental, genomic and proteomic data in the setting of autoimmune disease in three scientific work packages. Cross-cutting these is a work package focused on data governance, which places this cutting-edge research firmly in the new GDPR era. The PROTECT project (led by Prof Dave Lewis) also focusses on issues of personal data, specifically how to balance the impact on rights and interests of individuals, arising from its large-scale and continuous analysis, with the benefits to the economy and society arising from rapid innovation such analysis affords. This €3.7m network will deliver multidisciplinary training with Law, Technology Ethics and Knowledge Engineering researcher leaders across 7 beneficiaries and 5 partner organisations, via a structured research programme exploring the boundaries between these three fields. Further Information Informal enquiries about this post should be made to Prof Little or Prof Lewis.
