The European Health Data Space (EHDS) is an initiative launched by the European Commission. The purpose is to create an IT infrastructure making it possible to share and use health data for research, healthcare, and innovation across the EU.

CONNECT is one of the Danish contributors to the EHDS2 Pilot together with the Danish Health Data Authority. In the pilot project, 17 collaborators from across the EU will build a test version of the EHDS.

Since 2006, DCE has been a member of the International Clinical Epidemiology Network (INCLEN). INCLEN is a non-profit organisation, which seeks to increase the knowledge of clinical epidemiology among  clinicians and other researchers to help improve the health of people in the developing world.

DCE is a certified Clinical Epidemiology Research Training Centre within INCLEN and frequently hosts researchers from other partners of the network.


DCE is one of ten consortium partners from six different European countries with experience in the field of real-world data analyses. Real4Reg aims to promote the use of real-world data (national healthcare registers and claims data) to support the regulatory decisions about medicines.
