Dear Community and Investors,

Welcome to Data Lake’s 10th Project Update! February has been a HUGE month for us, and we want to share all the important updates, highlights, and milestones hit in the past weeks. From new achievements, product launches to partnerships and more, this newsletter has it all. Read on!

🌍 Expansion and Business Development

We signed the first framework agreement for the purchase of data!

We are proud to announce that we have secured the first framework agreement for the purchase of anonymized Medical Data — collected through our infrastructure — by a well established global data broker. This is a MAJOR milestone for our project as it not only proves that there is demand for anonymized data, but it also shows that our EU-compliant, consent-based, and patient-centric approach is an important factor for researchers when sourcing their data. We firmly believe that this is the first data agreement of many, and we are incredibly excited that one of our major goals for this year has been accomplished so early!

First Data Flow recorded on-chain!

On the 26th of January, we officially recorded the proof of the first data flow between Data Lake and a hospital on the Polygon blockchain.

This achievement marks a key milestone in our mission to provide a transparent and reliable platform to enable the exchange of medical data. It also confirms the huge potential of DeSci, opening the door to a new and compliant way of giving researchers access to medical data.

The Donate Your Data Foundation has began its public Data Donation Campaign

Fundacja Podaruj Dane (Polish for “Donate Your Data Foundation”) is the non-profit organization that is working to raise support for medical data donation and collect consents from Polish patients. The foundation has just launched a public awareness media campaign through Medonet.pl, a Polish healthcare news site with 70 million monthly views.
