Health-RI is an innovative and integrated research infrastructure initiated by BBMRI-NL, ELIXIR-NL, EATRIS-NL, NFU, DTL, Lygature, and Health~Holland. This research infrastructure is initiated to connect the existing biomedical research infrastructures in the Netherlands. The ultimate aim of Health-RI is to function as a one-stop-shop for researchers in the personalized health domain and beyond. Health-RI will interconnect biobanks, medical imaging and data collections allowing for mining and linking, and will provide access to facilities and IT solutions. Besides sharing and connecting resources, Health-RI will support research projects with tools as ethical and legal services, methodologies, data management training, protocols and best practices. To ensure the quality and effectiveness of the infrastructure, all resources must be FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). By creating the interconnected national Health-RI infrastructure, tools and resources will be at researchers’ fingertips to faster develop novel personalized medicine and health solutions. Visit the Health-RI website for more information about the project.
Connecting health research infrastructures
Lygature is one of the founding partners of the Health-RI project. With its extensive experience in managing complex health infrastructure projects (such as TraIT, PSI and BBMRI-NL) and its excellent program management skills, Lygature is responsible for strategy, program management and communication.
- Strategy. Together with the other founding partners, Lygature initiated Health-RI to interconnect the different research infrastructures and boost innovation in the field of personalized medicine and health. Together with the other partners Lygature is responsible for the strategy of Health-RI.
- Program management. Lygature handles strategic and day-to-day operations including administrative and financial roles. It is responsible for managing and monitoring the program on a day-to-day basis. This includes optimizing internal processes and looking for funding opportunities and collaborations.
- Communication. Lygature is responsible for the communication strategy, stakeholder management and communication tools supporting the Health-RI strategy.

Ethical, legal and social implications of preventative medicine
Preventative medicine is not without costs, and not just financial ones. Genetic testing, in particular, raises difficult questions. The upcoming Health-RI Conference (Jan 17, 2019) on P4 Medicine explores some of the issues...
To shared data stewardship with guidelines support
Data stewardship refers to the sustainable care for research data as an integral part of the research process. Good data stewardship is a prerequisite for Open Science and it is rapidly becoming common practice within the UMCs.
The revised version of the Handbook for Adequate Natural Data Stewardship (HANDS2.0) has been launched. All sections can assist you in drafting your data management plan.
