Prepared with Matteo Melideo
📝 Session abstract
Today, citizens are sharing a multitude of personal data. When they accept to share data, they often accept conditions of which they are not always aware (due to the time, experience, skills and literacy needed for them to take control of the process). Up until now, the health domain was relatively well protected from these kinds of challenges, but now is in dire need of good and reliable data (for example, to better integrate care, train algorithms, or develop agile research patterns). New initiatives have been emerging that offer solid support to citizens to ‘enforce’ control over their own data while being in a position to make an active contribution to emerging societal needs.
This session will explore the opportunities offered by, and challenges of, two concrete examples of trust enforcement mechanisms which are often used in combination: data intermediaries (such as data cooperatives and data trusts) and dynamic consent.

🕐 Session Programme
► 14:30 CET Session Introduction
Matteo Melideo, Ingegneria Informatica & Director of the EHTEL Board
► 14:35 CET Data cooperatives: shaping together an ethical social contribution to the future of healthcare
Ernst Hafen, Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, Zurich
An 8 November 2021 EHTEL “Imagining 2029” webinar provided a first introduction to the concept of data intermediaries. MIDATA was created in 2015. It provides a concrete example of an initiative which aims at supporting the foundation of regional or national cooperatives. It shares its data platform infrastructure and enables citizens to contribute to medical research and clinical studies. Ernst will explain the background that led to the foundation of MIDATA, its architecture, and the successful real-world project that uses the MIDATA data governance model. From this experience, he will outline what data cooperatives have to achieve to become successful and fair players in the personal data economy.
