1st ATHIKA Symposium on eHealth Challenge Identification and Analysis

Next 27th of June 1st AHIKA Symposium will take place in Barcelona at Dr. Josep Salvany Building (c/ Roc Boronat), Barcelona.

This event will be open to all targeted audiences and will lead to the identification of e-health innovation challenges, drivers and barriers as well as to facilitate health innovation synergies with other knowledge fields such as Smart Cities.

We will ask the panellists about their experiences on health improvement and specially on the challenges that still need to be addressed. And of course, we will encourage the audience to also contribute in the discussions.

This is a free event (including coffee break and lunch for networking) and will be conducted in English. We expect a large audience of students, SMEs, industry, researchers, and public bodies of the sector, and we are contacting important experts of the sector as panellists, which will be confirmed soon.

We prepare workers for Industry 4.0!

The introduction of technologies to the industrial companies can have a great impact in the production, logistics, sales and R&D areas. The majority of the companies from the industrial sector are not prepared for this change. At European level, around 75% of managers are not sufficiently well skilled on the new paradigm of Industry 4.0.

During the months of June, July and September, the European Erasmus+ Project, SPRINT 4.0 is going to host different one-week courses focusing on this new challenging paradigm, working in interdisciplinary teams, with the final objective of solving a real challenge from a company of the project. For more information:  

La Salle - Ramon Llull University

La Salle – Ramon Llull University is an institution with more than three hundred years of history, offering specialized university programs in Engineering, Architecture, Business Management and Animation and VFX with a clear international vocation. Within the Sprint4.0 project La Salle will host the course on Data and Security.

Estonian Genome Project
Started back in 2000 the Estonian Genome Project collects genome samples housed in a biobank at the Estonian Genome Centre in Tartu. In 2018 the Genome Centre announced its goal to collect the genetic data of 100,000 people while offering participants the opportunity to receive feedback on their personal genetic risks. With the successful completion of the goal by the end of 2018 the Estonian Genome Centre now houses genotyping data of one-tenth of Estonian population. This substantial growth in genetic data will contribute towards developing a better understanding of uncommon diseases, effects of lifestyle changes to health, long-term genetic risks, etc. The success has seen the Centre extend recruitment into 2019 with the aim of collecting a further 50,000 samples.

Estonian Genome Center

The Estonian Genome Center at the University of Tartu (EGCUT) is responsible for collecting genetic data of participating Estonians while the collected data is contained in the Estonian Biobank (part of the Centre). The Estonian Genome Project is funded by the Estonian government and the ERDF.
