VPH Share has concluded with a very successful final review in Eindhoven this month, where the reviewers described the project as "excellent and important". VPH Share is focused on providing a cloud environment enabling clinical researchers to develop simulation and decision support workflows to allow raw medical data to be refined into meaningful diagnostic and therapeutic information. The review presentation focused on the user stories enabled by the VPH Share "infostructure", for clinical, educational, industrial and research users, each of which have real-world problems which can be addressed using the project. The sustainability of the project was highlighted, showing how it can continue to contribute to the various user groups beyond the life of the project.
KMi’s contribution to the project is in the area of semantic services. By supporting semantic annotation of VPH Share services using the SWEET and iServe technologies, clinical researchers are enabled to discover and create new workflows relevant to their data, and datasets already published on the VPH Share platform.
Particular mention was made of the positive and open attitude of the project and its service to users.
