On 30 September 2021, we were glad to give a session at the European Health Forum Gastein organised with the title ‘Datademic, Data-decision-behaviour: A consolidated approach?’. The session was prepared by our partners from the Austrian and Belgian National Public Health Institutes Gesundheit Österreich GmbH (GÖG) and Sciensano. The discussion explored the complex relationship between health data/ information, policy and behaviour, and how better data can ultimately lead to better decisions. You missed the event?
