IMaging-based CUSTOMised EYE diagnostics


Report of viscoelastic parameters in first sets of eyes

Report of viscoelastic parameters in first sets of eyes, including enucleated eyes, normal eyes in vivo and 2D keratoconus and CXL eyes

Internet outreach and social media

The domain has been acquired for the IMCUSTOMEYE project, and will be updated by the coordinating team with public information from research reports and activities related with the project. Announcements will be distributed through a linked blog and a dedicated twitter account. Flyers presenting research to the public will be printed and distributed; information for the clinician and patient will be generated and disseminated through the web and social media.

Report demonstrating the technique on enucleated eyes

Corneal deformation imaging in porcine corneas ex vivo (normal, after IOP-reducing drops and cross-linking) and human donor eyes ex vivo.

Report demonstrating the techniques in human eyes in vivo

Corneal deformation imaging in normal eyes in vivo

Dissemination Plan

A Dissemination Plan will be prepared during the first 4 months of the project, identifying the most appropriate communication channels and tools for dissemination of key research findings related to all work-packages to a wide range of audiences.

Innovation management report

Innovation management report. This activity will be in coordination with WP8

Video clips

Short (<2 min) video clips will be made showcasing the results for the research and clinical work packages, after IP protection has been secured. The videos will be aimed at the general public, and will serve as explanatory material to potential investors in a commercialisation phase. *Months 12, 24 and 36

Press releases and media coverage

Publications in high impact journals and relevant achievements will be presented in press releases (both institutional and newsletters from academic and professional societies where project members have influence). Media coverage (television, radio, press, podcasts) is expected following press releases. Special attention will be made to seek broadcasting by European media, such as Euronews. *Months 18, 30 and 42

Project intranet in operation

The established SharePoint site will be launched, with areas for each work package, internal management, document tracking and internal communication.
