  • Promoting Open Access to biobank samples and biomedical data.
  • Improving information and communication technology (ICT), by developing and improving open source tools for data collection and informed consent, such as mobile apps
  • Increasing the understanding of the ethical challenges for effective data-mining  of big biomedical data.
  • Advance generic eScience tools for analysis of molecular and genetic data, for text mining of patient records and for safe and efficient management of  highly variable datasets.
  • Optimize risk prediction algorithms for screening, by utilizing the excellent Nordic registry and organized screening environment.
