SummaryThis meeting will aim to define the opportunities and challenges in applying a common data model in Europe to support regulatory decision-making and agree guiding principles for the development of such a model, including key criteria for validation in the context of regulatory decision-making. A common data model could help harmonise healthcare data across multiple data sets and provide a mechanism to conduct pan-European studies in a timely manner to address regulatory questions.
