A new H2020 European Research project kicked off for SKEL Lab in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on 6-7 March 2018. BigMedilytics (which stands for Big Data for Medical Analytics) is a big partnership between 35 organisations from throughout Europe.

During its 38 months of work the partnership will create a system by using health records of more than 11 million patients across 8 countries and data from other sectors such as insurance companies and the public sector.

BigMedilytics will aim to transform Europe’s Healthcare sector by using state-of-the-art Big Data technologies to achieve breakthrough productivity by reducing cost, improving patient outcomes and delivering better access to healthcare facilities simultaneously, covering the entire Healthcare Continuum – from Prevention to Diagnosis, Treatment and Home Care throughout Europe.

BigMedilytics will maximize its impact by using its Big Data Healthcare Analytics Blueprint and the Best Practices to scale up the concepts demonstrated in the 12 pilots, to the whole Healthcare sector in Europe.

NCSR Demokritos will run one of the 12 pilots under the coordination of Philips Electronics from The Netherlands. Dr. George Paliouras, SKEL Lab will be responsible for the project for NCSR Demokritos (
