The health data quality label

Developing a data quality and utility label for the European Health Data Space.


Quantum project kicks-off!

The QUANTUM project kicked off to create a common label system for Europe that will allow its use for scientific and health innovation purposes. These labels will enable researchers to use data with a notion of the quality and utility that will ensure that their research and innovations are effective and provide value to society.
