Handheld optical coherence tomography


Set-up content management system

With respect to content management, AIT will set up a web-based content management system (CMS) to facilitate the communication and the exchange of documents between partners. The access to the CMS will be provided on the project website via user specific ID and password. The structure of the CMS will be agreed on by all partners. The CMS will be continuously maintained and updated until the end of the project.

Press release

The dissemination of the results to research managers, company representatives and scientists not participating in the project, will be assured by the means of publications as well as by the participation in workshops and public forums such as events organised by the EC. Interaction with other EU and national projects as well as stakeholder organisations in the field of point-of-care diagnostics, ophthalmic diagnosis, and health care will be initiated. Various other routes of communication in non-scientific media will be actively pursued to ensure the visibility of HandheldOCT in the public such as publications in popular science magazines, press releases, popular science presentations on television and social media. At least two press releases will be launched by CZ at the beginning and at the end of the project on the vision of the HandheldOCT project and on its achievements, respectively.

Training event: Photonic integrated circuit technology & photonic packaging

Task 8.4: Training and education actions (month 6-18) During the project training actions will be taken to ensure knowledge exchange and to deepen the awareness with respect to key topics in this highly interdisciplinary consortium. The courses will be primarily directed to students and staff scientist as well as engineers of the partner organisations but also open to external guests. Three courses with internal and external experts are planned with the following topics: 1) Medical background on retinal diseases 2) Optical imaging in medicine 3) Photonic integrated circuit technology & photonic packaging Role of partners in this task: CZ (task leader): Organisation of training and education actions MUW: Hosting and/or performing training and education actions ALL PARTNERS: Participating in training and education actions
