Widening Research on Pervasive and eHealth - WideHealth

Project description

Dissemination of novel eHealth technologies for different healthcare contexts

The EU-funded WideHealth project aims to conduct research on pervasive eHealth and establish a sustainable network of research and dissemination across Europe. WideHealth will focus on data-driven healthcare, human factors in pervasive health and federated machine learning. It is expected that the outcomes of the project will be shared among early-stage researchers and researchers in target institutions. Additionally, WideHealth will feature training of administrative staff to improve their skills in project management and administration of research. The consortium will include partners from North Macedonia, Slovenia, Portugal, Italy and Germany. Ultimately, WideHealth will enable a new generation of researchers in these countries to develop and adapt novel eHealth technologies, exploitable in the longer run in their different healthcare contexts.

Objective

The WideHealth Project (Widening Research on Pervasive eHealth) will enable research exchanges and training activities on the topic of Pervasive and eHealth. The overarching goal of the project is to enable a new generation of researchers in the Widening Countries to develop and adapt novel eHealth technologies exploitable in the longer run in their different healthcare contexts. Also, the project will establish a sustainable network of knowledge research and dissemination across Europe in the Pervasive Health topic. The knowledge of requirements and available technologies for eHealth will be shared and become complementary between early-stage researchers and researchers in the target institutions involved in the twinning. This will allow researchers in Widening Countries to get trained and put this knowledge to use in their own context, improving potential of digitally enabled healthcare provisioning and impacting on both preventative medicine and alternative means of treatment. In particular, the project will address the following three research aspects: (i) data driven healthcare, (ii) human factors in pervasive health, (iii) federated machine learning. Additionally, WideHealth will include training of administrative staff to improve their skills on project management and administration of research funding. This way, the project will improve management and administration skills mainly for the coordinator UKIM, which is an important barrier to participating and obtaining European funding. The consortium includes partners from three Widening countries: UKIM - the coordinator - from North Macedonia, JSI from Slovenia, and FC.ID from Portugal. FC.ID - despite being from a Widening country - is a highly ranked university, so it will have a hybrid role, both receiving and providing expertise. The leading Institutions in this project are FBK in Italy and HPI in Germany, both of them recognized with high visibility in the Pervasive Health international research community.
