European project IDIH
International DIgital Health Cooperation for Preventative, Integrated, Independent and Inclusive Living
The purpose of the IDIH project is to promote and increase international cooperation to advance digital health in the EU and five Strategic Partner Countries (i.e. USA, Canada, China, Japan, South Korea) to support active and healthy aging through innovation. To this purpose, IDIH will identify shared priorities and set up a Digital Health Transformation Forum as a long-lasting and expert-driven catalyst to foster collaboration between the EU and the Strategic Partner Countries.
IDIH has four target objectives:
- To support the definition of common priorities to enhance strategic international cooperation in digital health in line with policy orientations through a thorough analysis of priorities in the EU and each of the Strategic Partner Countries and close involvement of the relevant funding agencies.
- To provide specific contributions to the international dialogue in digital health with the creation of a Digital Health Transformation Forum acting as an umbrella for high-level experts in four thematic groups (preventive care, integrated care, independent and connected living, and inclusive living).
- To facilitate the exchanges between Research, Technology and Innovation stakeholders from the EU and the Strategic Partner Countries in digital health through international workshops, promotion of cooperation opportunities and joining forces with other digital health initiatives.
- To foster international collaboration for digital solutions for health care benefitting the society and industry through networking and co-creation sessions in RTI workshops.
The IDIH project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 826092.
