Welcome to INTEGRATE
The INTEGRATE project aims to develop innovative infrastructures to enable data and knowledge sharing and to foster large-scale collaboration in biomedical research.
INTEGRATE flexible infrastructure components and tools will bring together heterogeneous multi-scale biomedical data generated through standard and novel technologies within post-genomic clinical trials. It will also provide a seamless link to existing research and clinical infrastructures, such as clinical trials management systems, eCRFs, and hospital EHRs.
Partially funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, INTEGRATE is coordinated by a Consortium of seven partners from different European countries. Each partner brings to the project its own expertise ranging from healthcare technology to clinical research coordination.

INTEGRATE – The Potential of Data Sharing, at the European Cancer Congress 2013 Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 27 September 2013
The INTEGRATE partners organised a symposium on the relevance of data sharing concepts in oncology during the European Cancer Congress 2013 in Amsterdam to disseminate the initial results of the INTEGRATE project to the wider research community.
Chaired by Prof David Cameron, this event attracted around 150 potential end-users.

INTEGRATE Newsletter | Issue 5
The 5th INTEGRATE Newsletter is available for download
The 5th issue of the newsletter highlights some of INTEGRATE's most recent achievements, with an emphasis on the development and fine tuning of several innovative tools to support the work of clinicians and pathologists, such as the Central Pathology Review platform or the Patient Screening and Cohort Selection tool.
In the Viewpoint section, readers will find a very interesting interview with three pathologists about digital pathology, the way it is changing practice in the clinic and in research, its current limitations in the clinical setting, and its future.
The INTEGRATE newsletters describe aspects of the research problems in focus, inform readers about challenges encountered and progress made towards overcoming them, and refer to relevant project deliverables.
Through the newsletter, the INTEGRATE project partners would like to engage readers in discussions about data sharing and collaboration in the biomedical domain, as well as the scientific issues around information integration and interoperability.
Each newsletter will contain a contribution by one or more of the seven INTEGRATE partners.
Enjoy your reading!
