Data in Safe Havens

The Academy convened this timely workshop to examine the current landscape of data safe havens and the next steps in their development.


The Academy convened a workshop on ‘Data in Safe Havens’, in partnership with the Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust, on 24 March 2014. The workshop was chaired by Professor Simon Lovestone FMedSci, Professor of Translational Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, and aimed to explore the range of safe havens currently in existence, and discuss the meaning and adequacy of data safe havens and the next steps in their development.

Participants included experts drawn from life sciences, administrative and healthcare safe havens in the UK and Europe. They were asked to consider data safe havens in the broadest sense, including databases that contain personal data from research, administration, routine healthcare and other services. Discussions centred on the major challenges currently facing safe havens and aimed to identify strategies for their future development.
