faculty as a part of a consortium of 13 institutions from 9 countries of EU was
successful with application for Erasmus+ K2 Cooperation for innovation and the
exchange of good practices - Knowledge Alliances. The project is named as University-industry educational Centre in
advanced Biomedical and Medical Informatics (CeBMI), and its goal is to
support educational process and develop courses addressing current progress in Biomedical
and Medical Informatics (BMI). Within the project, a centre in advanced BMI
will be developed. The centre will use new innovative cloud-based technology to
support the creation and delivery of new courses in BMI, which is a very
dynamic field undergoing rapid evolution and centrally featured in health
reforms across Europe. The courses will be offered at both undergraduate and
postgraduate levels to address a wide spectrum of core competency requirements
in the field of BMI. The centre will provide an invigorating environment for
the cooperation of technical and medical universities and enterprises in BMI
that will provide a pool of supplementary expertise, skills, and competences in
this area. Both universities and enterprises’ contemporaneous participation in
the project fosters a new trend of integrated medicine and IT educational
provision relevant for the definition of an emerging innovative BMI-related
professional profile that is well sought after by enterprises. The centre in
BMI will be open to other non-consortium partners that would like to be
involved in cooperative activities helping to ensure the project’s impact and
