The final meeting of the CORBEL patient-level data task force will be held in Paris from March 27th to 28th, 2017. The consensus document on usage of patient-level data as well as the proposed technical solutions for data sharing will be presented.
The task force was created to develop a common framework to provide access to anonymised, patient-level clinical trial data for re-analysis / meta-analysis in Europe. This initiative is in line with a recent editorial from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors requesting a data-sharing plan as part of the study protocol (N Engl J Med 2016; 374:384-386).
CORBEL is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement no. 654248).
