This section outlines a case study illustrating some of the harmonisation concepts described on the general data harmonisation page. The example is from the InterConnect consortium, which has used existing data from different study cohorts across the world [1].

Case study: Fish consumption and type 2 diabetes

Examples of harmonisation are also available for the other domains: Case Study 1 and Case Study 2 of the physical activity domain and Case Study of the anthropometry domain.
