Swedish Cohort Consortium (Cohorts.se)


The Swedish Cohort Consortium (Cohorts.se) is a project aimed at improving management and increasing the use of Swedish population-based cohorts (research databases with sensitive person data) for world-leading research. Coordination of all Swedish prospective population-based cohorts in a common infrastructure will enable more precise research findings and facilitate research on rare diseases and exposures, leading to better utilization of study participants’ data, better return of funders’ investments, and higher benefit to patients and populations. Cohorts.se will support some aspects of single cohort operations and all aspects of collaborations between cohorts. Important components of the infrastructure involve data curation and management, cataloguing of variables, presentation of and access to data, harmonization of variables for research projects, linkage of cohorts and official registries, and statistical analysis including a novel method for distributed data analysis eliminating the need to share data. The project aims to increase collaboration between Swedish universities and with in
