CISTIB at ICT2015 - Edward A Cramphorn - October 2015
In October as part of the VPH-DARE@IT (www.vph-dare.eu) project several member of CISTIB formed part of the team that attended ICT 2015 in Lisbon (link). This Event is organised by the European Commission (ec.europe.eu) to showcase the newest technology and development in the fields of Information and Computing Technology. The event consistent of an exhibition with parallel session exploring the EC policy and presentations from exhibitors, the opening ceremony was performed by Commissioner Gȕnther Oettinger (EC profile). As part of the exhibit that show cased the VPH-DARE Research and Clinical Platforms and other technology.
We presented the Research Platform and the project as a whole, alongside representatives from VTT/Combunostics (need to insert link) and Kinematics (need to insert link); who presented the Patient Care Platform and Citizen Portal and the latest generation of the Insole Insert used for collecting gait data for the lifestyle factors. We exhibited alongside other EHealth exhibits which allowed us to communicate to an audience of professionals and fellow researchers alongside the general public. ICT was also attended by the Mayor of Lisbon Antonio Costa and other notable figures.
The event allowed us to make contacts that could lead to new projects or provide the spark for new avenues of work, as well as raising our profile among the European Commission and the attendee’s. It also allowed us to see how CISTIBs work and the work of our partners reaches out to other projects, letting us understand how we fit into the big picture of eHealth, Personalised medicine and big data processing.
We are hoping to be able to take our contribution alongside our partners to ECR 2016 so watch this space for an update on how things go. If you have questions or would like to know more please get in touch.
