The DataSHaPER (Data Schema and Harmonization Platform for Epidemiological Research) is both a scientific approach and a suite of practical tools. Its primary aims are to facilitate the prospective harmonization of emerging biobanks, provide a template for retrospective synthesis and support the development of questionnaires and information-collection devices, even when pooling of data with other biobanks is not foreseen. The development of these tools has been jointly funded by P³G, CPT, PHOEBE, and Generation Scotland.
