The Free University Brussels

Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is an internationally oriented university in Brussels, the heart of Europe. The Health and Ageing Law Lab (HALL), part of the Law, Science, Technology and Society (LSTS) research group established at VUB, is composed of a team of researchers who are specialised in themes linked to matters of health and ageing.

In particular, its members conduct research in multi-disciplinary areas such as privacy and data protection, the use of advanced technologies in healthcare, pharmaceutical development and research, e-Health and m-Health and healthy ageing. HALL aims to explore synergies between these researchers and as a result provide for a coordinated research focus and output.

Role in the Facilitate Project

VUB will lead WP2 (Legal and data privacy framework) and also participate in WP1 (T1.2), 3 (T3.4 & T3.5) and 6.
