Our faculty will coordinate new Erasmus+ project - University-industry educational Centre in advanced Biomedical and Medical Informatics (CeBMI)

Our 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 sustainability.

The following educational institutions are involved in the implementation of the project:

  • University of Zilina (Zilina, Slovakia)
  • Leeds Beckett University (Leeds, United Kingdom)
  • Peter L. Reichertz Institute for Medical Informatics of the Technical University of Braunschweig (Braunschweig, Germany)
  • Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma (Rome, Italy)
  • Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid, Spain)
  • University of Oulu (Oulu, Finland)
  • University of Valencia (Valencia, Spain)
