International Digital Health Collaboration for Preventive, Integrated, Independent and Inclusive Living

Project description

Healthy ageing opportunities go digital in the EU

Building international cooperation in the field of digital health is necessary to keep up with latest innovations and technological advancements in the field of healthy ageing. The EU-funded IDIH project aims to organise a Digital Health Transformation Forum to serve as a catalyst to encourage close collaboration with experts, agencies and RTI stakeholders from Canada, China, Japan, South Korea and the US with EU. The consortium (involving experts in healthcare and digital health, IT) will formulate priorities and find contributions for works in four groups: preventive care, integrated care, independent and connected living and inclusive living. New collaborations will be established for digital solutions in healthcare, society and the health industry.


The aim of the IDIH project is to promote and increase international cooperation to advance digital health in the EU and key strategic countries to support active and healthy ageing through innovation.
IDIH will identify shared priorities and set up a Digital Health Transformation Forum as a long-lasting and expert-driven catalyst to foster collaboration between the EU and five strategic third countries, i.e. Canada, China, Japan, South Korea and the USA.
Overall, the IDIH project sets 4 targeted objectives. First, to support the definition of common priorities to enhance strategic international cooperation in digital health in line with policy orientations through a thorough analysis of priorities in Europe and each of the strategic third countries and close involvement of the relevant funding agencies. Secondly, to provide specific contributions to the international dialogue in digital health with the creation of a Digital Health Transformation Forum acting as umbrella for high-level experts in four thematic groups (Preventive care, Integrated care, Independent and connected living and Inclusive living). Thirdly, to facilitate the exchanges between RTI stakeholders from the EU and strategic third countries in digital health through international workshops, promotion of cooperation opportunities (guidebook, webinars, helpdesk) and joining forces with other initiatives. Fourthly, to foster international collaboration for digital solutions for health care benefitting the society and industry through networking and co-creation sessions in RTI workshops.
The consortium partners have complimentary expertise, including healthcare & digital health, IT, H2020 project management, technology transfer etc. The consortium has close links to funding authorities and actors in the Digital Health Industry in all countries/regions and have wide networks in the community. As such, the consortium possesses expertise and tools to successfully realise the objectives of the project.
