GLOMICAVE partners from KU Leuven participated in the 8th European Conference on Health Law celebrated from 20th until 22nd of April in Ghent, Belgium.
The conference offered a unique programme of distinguished keynote speakers, sessions, workshops, oral and poster presentations on broad scientific issues covering the main theme of the event: “Quality of healthcare. Can the law help to guarantee safe and reliable care for the patient?”
Janos Meszaros and Teodora Lalova, researchers at KU Leuven, participated in the conference and delivered the presentation “Data altruism in health research: putting the new mechanism under review”. In their contribution, they discussed the EU Data Governance Act, which aims to establish a data altruism mechanism in the European Union, as well as the data altruism related to health data.
They took the opportunity in their presentation to mention the GLOMICAVE project and talk about non-personal data, such as plant or animal data, which is strongly related to the research done within the project.
KU Leuven is a multidisciplinary and research-driven university dedicated to education and research in a huge diversity of fields. It is Belgium’s highest-ranked university and one of the oldest universities in Europe.
