NHS Scotland allows research using routinely collected, unconsented patient data. Additionally, these data can be linked to social data such as education. The research this enables can have an enormous public benefit but the use of these data must be managed very carefully to safeguard privacy and maintain public trust and support.
EPCC is responsible for building, supporting and hosting the infrastructure of the National Safe Haven, and we continue to develop the infrastructure and software to further enhance the service.

EPCC, the University of Edinburgh, and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) recently ran a Best Use of ARCHER competition to facilitate early-career researchers, who are all either PhD candidates or postdoctoral researchers, to build and develop their international network. ARCHER and EPSRC both recognise the importance of enabling young researchers to build their personal network to help build collaborations and skills.
