  • Identify key issues in the interpretation and analysis of big, heterogeneous datasets and offer strategies to overcome these challenges
  • Inform local and national governments and funding agencies of the value of cohorts and genomics (and “omics”) for data-driven healthcare and efficient use of research budgets
  • Promote collaborations and networking opportunities
  • Produce a white paper with recommendations for addressing some of the challenges identified and for knowledge translation across the community
