EURECA (Enabling information re-Use by linking clinical REsearch and CAre) is a collaborative project that is funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (Grant agreement no:288048).

The project aims to achieve semantic interoperability between electronic health records (EHR) and clinical trials systems. EURECA will develop solutions that fulfill the data protection and security needs and the legal, ethical and regulatory requirements related to linking research and EHR data.

We are interested in your opinion about the project in general and specifically we would like to know from you how to improve the EURECA environment. We would also like to ask you to describe what is hampering you in your current work and what applications you would find useful if all the systems were integrated in your organisation and you could seamlessly collaborate with other organisations.
