Call for action: K2 - Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices - Knowledge Alliances

Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome is among the partners of the Erasmus project CeBMI. Paolo Soda is the cordinator for UCBM.

track_changes Objectives

The aim of the project, which is being addressed by a consortium of 13 institutions from 9 EU countries within the Knowledge Alliances (Erasmus+ K2), is to support the 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.

Biomedical and Medical Informatics (BMI) is a very dynamic field undergoing rapid evolution and  centrally featured in health reforms across Europe.

Emerging technologies in BMI are central to making healthcare more personalised, precise, reliable, safer and cost effective. The increased interest in BMI education and training is leading to transformative trends in creating new educational programs at higher education institutions in Europe offering a BMI degree.

New emerging interdisciplinary domains are being added to the curriculum offering additional possibilities and challenges for engineers and system scientists to be involved, but at the same time imposing new demands on core teaching and learning competences.

description Structure of the Centre

The development and implementation of the Centre-BMI to support educational process and courses appropriately addresses this pressing and real problem.

This Centre will exploit new innovative cloud-based technology to support the creation and delivery of new courses/subjects in BMI that is complex and multidisciplinary. Courses will be offered both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels to address a wide spectrum of core competency requirements. The Centre will provide an invigorating environment for the cooperation of technical, 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. This Centre 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.
