About the Event

On Monday 23 October 2023, Health Translation Queensland (HTQ) will officially launch HeSANDA’s Queensland node.

At this event, Queensland’s health research community will find out how to set up their clinical trials for the sharing and re-use of data and how to upload their trials into the Queensland node so they are identifiable in Health Data Australia.


On 18 July 2023, the ARDC launched Health Data Australia, a new national catalogue making sharing and requesting access to data from health studies easier.

The catalogue for sharing clinical trial data was co-designed by the ARDC, experts and representatives from the 9 initial nodes of the Health Studies Australia National Data Asset (HeSANDA) network that represents over 70 health research organisations across Australia.

HeSANDA is an initiative of the ARDC that began in 2021 and continues under the People Research Data Commons. The ARDC is supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

Keynote Speaker

Professor Andrew Morris, Director at Health Data Research UK, will give a talk on the UK’s system and outline the benefits of data sharing.
