On December 15th, we had the pleasure of attending a meeting hosted by Szymon Bielecki (EC DG CONNECT – Unit H3: eHealth, well-being and ageing) with the cluster of EU-funded projects on the topic of AI for Genomics and Personalised MedicinePANCAIM, INTERVENE and KATY on the 1+ Million Genomes initiative, which brings together 22 European countries, the UK and Norway with the goal of making at least 1 million sequenced genomes accessible in the EU by 2022.

This was a great opportunity to directly interact and discuss ethics and legal concerns (mainly on data sharing) with representatives from the B1MG (Beyond 1 Million Genomes) and their working group on Ethical, Legal and Social Issues (ELSI).

Check out their work here and stay tuned for more updates on this collaboration!
