A lot of excellent scientific knowledge exists in several databases in the Dutch healthcare and research institutes. The Mondriaan Project aims to connect all this knowledge and make it available to researchers in order to fuel pharmaceutical research in the Netherlands and to play an internationally competitive role in drug intelligence and innovation.


The mission of the Mondriaan Project is to create a “grid to integrate and to enrich existing and new health data platforms in order to fuel pharmaceutical research in The Netherlands and to play an internationally competitive role in drug intelligence and innovation.” To achieve this, a number of challenges need to be met. These include the need to combine existing databases in the Netherlands into a common framework; analyze and update/optimize existing collection of data and acquire new access to healthcare data; find optimal technological solutions for access, protection, and storage of healthcare data either at a single or multiple locations; design a structure to make best scientific use of the data both for academic and industrial partners; and create a legal and financial basis for long-term continuation of Mondriaan as an institute with national and international impact.
