Governance

Currently, we are in the “kick-off” stage (= 2019). This means the MS Data Alliance does not have a formal governance yet. During this kick-off year, Hasselt University (UH) is appointed as project and toolbox coordinator (lead investigator LMPeeters). The European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) is appointed as academy coordinator and will draw on its over 30 years experience as European voice of over 750.000 people with MS.

A provisional steering board is appointed consisting of following members:

  • Hasselt University: Liesbet M. Peeters & Bart Van Wijmeersch
  • EMSP: Christoph Thalheim & Pieter van Galen
  • European Charcot Foundation (ECF): Giancarlo Comi, Bernard Uitdehaag, Patrick Vermersch, Maria Trojano, Jan Samyn
  • University Medical Center: Tina Meissner, Christian Bauer
  • KULeuven: Yves Moreau, Amin Ardeshirdavani
  • European Institute for innovation through health data (i-HD): Dipak Kalra
  • German MS Registry: Alexander Stahmann
