SERVICE & SOLUTIONS
Thanks to its extensive experience in innovative research and effective project management,
Lynkeus offers cutting-edge services and solutions in a variety of areas.
CONSULTING & STRATEGY
Lynkeus offers medium-term strategic consultancy aimed at the identification, analysis, evaluation
and planning of innovative strategic solutions such as new strategic business areas, new
technologies introduction, organisational and functional restructuring, internal networks creation,
and scientific research programmes identification and development. This service can also provide
a continuous consulting programme aiming at devising, planning and supervising the implementation
of interrelated initiatives, and at employing a set of full-time internal and external
resources, specialised in cross-cutting analytical sectors.
DISSEMINATION & COMMUNICATION
Lynkeus’ expertise leads to specific dissemination techniques particularly suited to highlight
scientific and technological outcomes in order to ensure that communication material is accessible
and understandable by both experts and lay people, allowing to involve also extensive patient
groups, when needed. Thus, specific knowledge is shared among stakeholders, partners,
and users, and external organisations and actors can be recruited to empower their expertise.
Lynkeus offers advance established project management services to institutions and organisations
seeking European Commission funds for innovative research projects. Thanks to its accrued
experience in FP6/FP7/H2020 European projects, its added value stems from the
approach operating with roles separation in the global coordination and responsibility delegation
to leading industrial or clinical partners, by working in a closely integrated fashion to prompt a
co-operative and effective decision-making process.
Intense discussion on preliminary strategic analysis designed by Lynkeus together with decision-
makers among clients leads to ad hoc groups formation for high-level brainstorming to
bring out possible future scenarios. During these well-designed sessions, each projects team,
embedded in a clime of freedom and knowledge, identifies possible crucial hints on a broad
range of information for alternative business views and future events to be developed by Lynkeus
together with the experts. This scenario methodology allows the client to explore different
perspectives on business model, to compare different views on emerging issues, to document
societal thinking changes, to expand market understanding, and to focus on operational management.
• Clinical decision support technologies. Lynkeus has supported the design and the implementation
of advanced decision support technologies including machine learning and AI models
in a variety of diseases. Medical experts define work-flow and clinical validation requirements,
evaluate cost-effectiveness, legal and ethical constraints and engage directly with clinicians
throughout the solution's life cycle. As co-author of the Avicenna Roadmap In-silico Clinical
Trials: How Computer Simulation will Transform the Biomedical Industry, an EC-supported research
and technological strategy road-map for simulation-based development of biomedical products,
Lynkeus has been pioneering the use of advanced in-silico solutions for biomedical
research too, promoting the use of anatomical models and virtual patients in clinical trials.
• Secure biomedical data sharing, privacy preservation and GDPR compliance. As the Project
Coordinator of the H2020 MyHealthMyData project, Lynkeus has led the development of the
first peer-to-peer biomedical data sharing infrastructure in Europe that is GDPR compliant by
design, allowing data to be shared at scale between patients, hospitals, research centres and
businesses. In this context, as well as in other subsequent projects including euCanSHare, eu-
CanImage, KRAKEN and SimCor, Lynkeus is also directly exploring innovative techniques for
synthetic data and their use as key enhancer of biomedical R&D productivity under the highest
privacy standards, as well as secure computations without accessing the original data, but delivering
analytics outputs bringing the algorithms to the data, through homomorphic encryption,
secure multi-party computation, and federated learning. Lynkeus has developed a deep expertise
in analysing and addressing Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) of cross-border
data sharing and artificial intelligence applications in healthcare.
• Blockchain in healthcare. Lynkeus has led the creation of the Research Data Alliance
(RDA) Interest Group on Health Data, as well as the Blockchain in health Working Group within
the RDA and the Government Blockchain Association (GBA). and of the Lynkeus is fostering the
use of blockchain as a key solution to major challenges in healthcare, such as privacy protection,
systems interoperability, and patient empowerment over personal data. Lynkeus consults
with both private and academic centres to design and implement blockchain-based infrastructures
for data sharing, access control and logistics in a variety of biomedical scenarios.
