The DigitalHealthEurope project has recently issued a call for twinning which aims at facilitating the transfer and implementation of digitally-enabled innovative practices from one region to another. Given the tremendous impact that built environments have on people’s health and well-being, we thought some of the EIP-SCC partners might want to integrate projects for the digital transformation of health and care in their own initiatives. If so, the ongoing call for twinning is the perfect opportunity to build on the knowledge existing in other European regions.
The European Commission is providing funding for twinning among European stakeholders as a mechanism to facilitate the transfer of digital know-how across Europe. The EU-funded project Digital Health Europe has launched a call for twinning in health and care. Apply to receive funding now.
DigitalHealthEurope is a Coordination and Support Action providing support to the EU Communication on enabling the digital transformation of health and care, which has three priorities:
1.Citizens’ secure access to and sharing of health data across borders - enabling citizens to access their health data across the EU;
2. Better data to advance research, disease prevention and personalised health and care - allowing researchers and other professionals to pool resources (data, expertise, computing processing and storage capacities) across the EU;
3. Digital tools for citizen empowerment and person-centred care - using digital tools to empower people to look after their health, stimulate prevention and enable feedback and interaction between users and healthcare providers.
Digital Health Europe has launched a Call for Twinning, which makes available almost € 1 million to interested organisations.
The deadline for submission of tenders is 7 August 2019.
Suitable twinning partners can be found by registering at the DHE Twinning Marketplace.
