The research community is demanding an integrative and flexible research platform where the different multidisciplinary biomedical imaging and simulation tools are available from a single access point.

The use of different research applications as separate components has many disadvantages. Some examples are the need of handling data format conversions and software incompatibilities, and the increase of computational resources consumption. This lack of data and knowledge sharing jeopardizes the creation of personalized models aimed at the design of patient-specific treatments.

This VPH-DARE@IT research platform will integrate the efforts of the rest of the WPs and other open source tools already available that focus on dementia research, providing a single framework where new generation workflows will be created focusing on multiscale patient specific treatment for dementia.
