Stakeholder forum


We are pleased to invite you to the TEHDAS Stakeholder forum taking place on 14 June 2023 from 10:00 to 13:00 in Helsinki as an official side event of the Radical Health Festival Helsinki.

TEHDAS, the joint action Towards the European Health Data Space, is coming to an end. The Stakeholder forum is pleased to invite experts, professionals and decision-makers in the health sector across Europe to the final event of the project to learn about the results and to discuss the current development of the European health data space.

As the project advances more extensive use of health data across Europe, TEHDAS provided elements to the European Commission’s legislative proposal on the EU’s health data space published in May 2022. Toward the end of the project, we will give recommendations to facilitate the successful implementation of the European health data space.

The TEHDAS Stakeholders forum is free of charge but requires prior registration. Space is limited. Registration will stay open until maximum capacity is reached.

To register please visit the TEHDAS website.

“Most of Finland’s health data has been digital for 30 years. We recognize how valuable this abundance of data is. However, we have only taken baby steps in leveraging all these records to improve clinical and financial outcomes. Like many other countries around the world, we have a long way to go on the road to unleashing the full potential of data. Venues like the Radical Health Festival Helsinki are the perfect forum to strategize out-of-the-box together and make great advances toward this vision.”

Dr. Janne Aaltonen, CEO, Finnish Medical Association, Finland
