Promoting and Monitoring Biomedical Informatics in Europe

Project description

Virtual Physiological Human

Biomedical Informatics deals with the integrative management and synergic exploitation of the wide ranging and inter-related scope of information that is generated and needed in healthcare settings, biomedical research institutions and health-related industry.Some key present challenges of Biomedical Informatics are:- The effective and synergic integration between computational methods and technologies supporting life sciences research (Bioinformatics) and the informatics supporting healthcare and medical research (Health or Medical Informatics).- The development of effective translational knowledge management approaches facilitating the application of knowledge arising from basic biomedical research into clinical practice.- The integration and joint exploitation of heterogeneous information stored in widespread repositories and diverse formats.- The development of innovative methods for the modelling and simulation of complex biological phenomena, as well as the corresponding computational applications.- The intersection between neuroscience and informatics (neuroinformatics).In this context, INBIOMEDvision aims to become a European-wide initiative intended to monitor the evolution of the Biomedical Informatics field and address its scientific challenges by means of collaborative efforts performed by a broad group of experts with complementary perspectives on the field. These efforts will certainly contribute to the strength and expansion of the Biomedical Informatics scientific community, particularly in Europe.INBIOMEDvision will develop a series of services and activities to serve the aforementioned purposes (inventory of resources and initiatives, state of the art reviews, prospective analyses, community-building actions and dissemination and training activities).
