IMI BigData@Heart

June 30th 2017


Launched in March 2017, BigData@Heart is a five-year project of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), a public-private initiative between the European Union and the pharmaceutical industry association EFPIA.

BigData@Heart aims to develop a data-driven translational research platform towards improving patient outcomes and therefore reducing the societal burden of Atrial Fibrillation (AF), Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and Heart Failure (HF) in Europe.

The BigData@Heart consortium brings together 19 partners ranging from leading epidemiologists and big data scientists, to patient and cardiovascular professional organisations, as well as pharmaceutical industry representatives.  The European Heart Network will be representing the views of those living with these cardiovascular diseases as well as ensuring that key findings are disseminated among patient organisations and policy makers, with a view to improving current clinical practice and policies.

BigData@Heart is one of the four disease-specific consortia of the IMI Programme Big Data for Better Health Outcomes.
