New methods for RWE collection and synthesis

Welcome to GetReal

Work packages

WP1: Advocacy, community building and implementation of tools

Community building is an integral part of the adoption strategy, therefore, WP1 will build on the unique collaboration framework created in the original IMI GetReal project to provide the infrastructure (the GetReal Community) through which the GetReal Initiative will collaborate with other major initiatives, organisations, key stakeholders, thought leaders and scientists working in the field of RWE generation and analysis, in addition to regulators, key healthcare decision makers, physicians and patients. The collaboration will be utilised to disseminate solutions which encompass the tools created in IMI GetReal to tackle major obstacles facing the use of RWE in effectiveness research and in healthcare decision making. WP1 will compose of three main groups:

Main groups WP1

WP2: Long term sustainability of the GetReal Initiative on a not-for-profit basis

The goal of WP2 is to ensure the continuity of the GetReal Research Community, GetReal Think Tank/Task Forces and GetReal tools/key outputs beyond the period of the IMI2 funding, through the development of a broadly supported business plan, governance structure and the creation of a small self sustaining unit, run on a not-for-profit basis. 

WP3 Project management and communication

WP3 will address the overall project management to ensure progress of the project towards its planned objectives and is responsible for communication activities of the project.

WP4 Ethics

The goal of WP4 is to deal with all the relevant ethical issues in order to comply with the ethics standards of H2020 and to establish a sustainable governance for the data infrastructure during the project and beyond.
