This event was co-organized by DNV GL and the Cancer Registry of Norway.   

A meeting place. For current and future potential users who need federated networks to perform health data analysis (researchers, analysts, data scientists), both commercial- and research providers of infrastructure and solutions for federated networks, leadership and decision makers who wish to understand the challenges their organizations face that can be addressed by federated networks.    

For current and future users, providers of infrastructure and solutions, leadership and decision makers

Background. Federated networks have been proposed as a potential approach to enable coordinated access to distributed datasets that cannot easily be shared, for the purposes of querying and training AI-algorithms. How can these be applied to health data, and what would the benefits, requirements and limitations be?
