K.I. und Medizintechnik, eine interessante Kombination? Dazu suchen wir Partner für einen EU-Forschungs-Call. Stichworte: #AI #Heathcare #MedTech
Hier aus der Ausschreibung:
„…. to fund the development and implementation of highly innovative and challenging AI pilots, which will become the flagship portfolio of success stories, enlarging the value and outreach of the ecosystem, model, and technologies. This call will finance pilots made of small consortia of 2–3 partners representing at least Technology providers/integrators: emphasis on the AI and robotics Startups/SMEs (innovators), and Technology adopters: healthcare facilities (end users). Optionally a consortium is welcomed to engage a research centre and/or academia, and or another SME/Start-up taking a role of a competence centre collaborating in the strategically important area(s) between the innovation and health care industry. The selection of each consortium partner must be justified. The expected result will be 4 innovative pilots by European SMEs/Startups, demonstrating the value and benefits of technologies in different health care environments/entities across Europe.”
● 2–3 partners representing at least:
● Technology providers/integrators: emphasis on the AI and robotics Startups/SMEs (innovators), and
● Technology adopters: healthcare facilities (clinics / end users).
Was wir suchen:
|Target group||Technology providers/integrators (mandatory): Companies, in particular startups/SMEs that can offer a novel technology to be validated in a realistic healthcare relevant environment. Technology adopters (mandatory): End-users with a specific need that falls into at least one of the focus areas: healthcare digitalization, advanced robotics, AI, data, and cybersecurity can validate the experimental pilot. This provides a chance for the end-users and system integrators alike to modernize their processes via new technologies for smart healthcare facilities. Competence centres (optional): research centres, academia, and other SME/Startup supporting the integration of the experimental pilot in the healthcare industry.|
|Activities to be funded||Design > Develop & Deploy & Operate > Assess new pilots adopting platform to ensure a fast pace, quality of deployment and measurable impact. See table1 for details.|
|Duration of activities||12 months|
|Funding||Up to €145 000 per applying consortium. The total grant requested will represent up to 100% of the total costs of the submitted project. Checking the consistency between these costs and the expected work of the project will be part of the evaluation process.|
The applying consortia can be composed of:
● micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)/Startups,
● healthcare entity/entities (e.g hospital(s))
● secondary and higher education establishments, research institutes and other not-forprofit research entities. Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are considered eligible only.
„Our mission is to guarantee the integration of Digital and Robot technologies in new Healthcare environments and the possibility to analyse their benefits by providing an environment where digital health care tool providers will be able to design and develop AI solutions as well as a space for the instantiation and deployment of AI solutions.“
