Health Data Research UK is leading the delivery of the Digital Innovation Hub Programme – a UK-wide initiative to enable the safe and responsible use of health-related data at scale for research and innovation.

This is a four-year programme (September 2018 to July 2022) delivered on behalf of UK Research and Innovation and funded by the UK Research and Innovation’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

Health Data Research UK is working in partnership with a wide range of organisations and individuals to develop a draft prospectus that will define the specification for the Digital Innovation Hub Programme.
