Optimal treatment for patients with solid tumours in Europe through artificial intelligence’ (OPTIMA)

Project summary

To achieve this ambitious goal, the OPTIMA project focuses on the following goals:

  1. Setting up a real-world evidence data platform for prostate, breast and lung cancer with real-world data from >200 million people from all over Europe.


  1. Stimulating new knowledge development through advanced analytics and artificial intelligence models. Within the OPTIMA project, the most important knowledge gaps within the prostate, breast and lung cancer field will be identified and prioritized. Based on the key unanswered questions within the work areas of each of the three cancer types, specific artificial intelligence models will be developed within the OPTIMA project to fill knowledge gaps and propose improved guideline recommendations.

3. Developing electronic tools to support the process of shared decision-making between the doctor and the patient. The electronic decision support tools will be linked to the electronic patient record for better implementation in daily clinical practice.


OPTIMA’s mission is to design, develop and deliver the first interoperable and GDPR compliant European platform for oncology data generation
