In recent years, the development and use of Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs) throughout Europe has grown exponentially resulting in large volumes of clinical data. At the same time, large collections of disease‐specific data are recorded – in local, regional and/or national settings. Researchers also follow specific cohorts over time, and focus on specific types of data such as imaging or genetic data. Other researchers are building biobanks that aim to combine clinical data with genetic data. As a result, individual patients can contribute to multiple, often separate, data sources. This project combines the topic of generating a common patient health Information Framework (IF) with addressing the two Research Topics (RT’s) Obesity and its metabolic complications and Markers for the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias.
