Frequently Asked Question
How long does it take for a research request to be approved?
Last Updated 3 years ago
You can expect an initial response to your research request within a week. Approval depends on, among others, the scientific value of your proposal, the volume of requested data, and the cost of involvement for patients or general practitioners. Note that approval does not mean you are immediately granted access to the requested data. After approval you are engaged in an e-mail correspondence with one of our data stewards to negotiate, among others, the means, the timeliness, and the cost of data access. We cannot provide an estimate of the time between approval and data access.
