The goal of EURECA (Enabling information re-Use by linking clinical REsearch and Care) was to enable seamless, secure, scalable and consistent linkage of healthcare information residing in electronic health record (EHR) systems with information in clinical research information systems, such as clinical trials. Achieving semantic interoperability among EHR and clinical trial systems was at the core of the EURECA project, formed the basis for enabling many of the software services and tools developed in the project.


The EURECA project, involving 18 partners among which BIG, started in 2012 and ended in July 2015.
