Link of the week - SHARE: who, what, when, how and in what order

More than physics, more than astronomy, it is human health that captures the imagination of people across the planet. Whether it’s cancer or AIDS, aging or depression, health-related issues have an immediate and universal appeal that has powered the rise of several healthgrid-related projects.

Now, a new project has arrived to bond and unite heathgrid projects from around the globe.

SHARE and share alike 

Called SHARE, or Structuring and supporting Healthgrids Activities and Research in Europe, the project unites collaborators working towards a common goal: better healthcare through the development of grid-powered e-science.

“SHARE aims to develop a roadmap for the wide adoption and deployment of grid technology for health in Europe,” explained Tony Solomonides of the University of the West of England and HealthGrid. “We need to define what has to be done, when and in what sequence, by whom and how. We require action in several domains: technical research and development; standards and security for real world deployment; squaring up to ethical and legal issues; and community acceptance and economic investment.”

So far the SHARE project has defined a strategy to address the issues identified in the action plan for European e-Health and has devised a roadmap for the major technological, ethical and legal developments, as well as social and economic investments needed for successful take-up of healthgrids over the next ten years. The final road map is now in beta version, having undergone a full review by a panel of over 25 prominent European experts in December 2007.

SHARE is funded by the European Commission and involves universities and laboratories from Spain, Belgium, the UK, Germany and France, as well as from the U.S. and Taiwan. The SHARE project builds on the conclusions of the HealthGrid initiative’s White Paper.
