With a budget of eight million euros and a duration of four years, IDEA4RC, a new project funded by Horizon Europe, in which the University of Deusto (UDEUSTO) is a partner, will create an Intelligent Ecosystem to improve the governance, the sharing and the re-use of health Data for Rare Cancers. The main objective of this project is to establish a Data Space for rare cancers (RC) that will make possible the re-use of existing multisource health data (cancer registry data, national registries, data from biobanks etc.) across European healthcare systems leveraging emerging interoperability technologies and AI approaches. The "Rare Cancer Data Ecosystem" is expected to improve the quality and the organization of RC patients care, and to increase knowledge on rare cancers advancing health research, so that all patients have equal access to high quality specialist care.

Aitor Almeida, Aritz Bilbao and Unai Zulaika, researchers from UDeusto will lead WP5 “Natural EU languages processing toolkit” and will actively participate in other work packages.

Led by INT (Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori), IDEA4RC has 25 partners from 12 European countries.
