Estonian Biobank Joins DARWIN EU® Network to Support Europe’s Public Health

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has chosen the University of Tartu as one of the data partners for the DARWIN EU® network. This partnership marks the beginning of a collaborative effort to utilize health data across Europe, with the aim of using evidence-based data from routine healthcare to support public health, medicine regulation, and safety.

“Health information on the use of medicines from different countries is urgently needed to support and improve public health, and in addition, cross-country analysis has so far been hampered by data compatibility issues.
