The University of Nottingham (UoN) is ranked in the top 30 universities in Europe and in the top 1% of universities worldwide. UoN has campuses in Malaysia and China as well as the UK with around 45,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. UoN have five faculties and a wide range of schools offering over 700 courses.
UoN participates in the project through the Health E-Learning and Media (HELM) team, and the Digital Innovations in healthCare and Education (DICE) research group based in the School of Health Sciences. The DICE focuses on innovation in the delivery of education and practice. Digital innovations such as exercise-based video games (exergames), gamified applications, e-learning resources, multimedia and other technologies are having a powerful impact on improving contemporary healthcare practice and education. The Health e-Learning and Media (HELM) team based in the SHS has an international reputation for its elearning innovation and developments including the multi-award winning Helm Open site (www.nottingham.ac.uk/helmopen) which offers freely available high quality digital learning objects for health being used all over the world. They recently received the gold award for digital content at the Reimagine Education awards 2018.
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) serves as the metropolitan University for southern Europe. It is the largest University in Greece covering all disciplines. The Lab of Medical Physics (MEDPHYS) is the largest laboratory of the Medical School and accommodates a dynamic and interactive research community. MEDPHYS, ISO-9001 certified in Software Design, Develop and Production; Design & Implementation of Education/Training programs, is a major research and development center comprised of 9 research groups, leaders in their respective specialties, which pursue innovative research projects in assistive technologies, applied neurosciences, medical education, affective computing, semantic web, medical robotics and brain computer interfaces, radio diagnosis and non-ionizing radiation.
In the CEPEH project, the Lab of Medical Physics will deploy its resources and infrastructure through the Medical Education Informatics Research Group (MEI), which focuses on exploring shifting paradigms in education and breakthroughs in information technologies for implementation in novel and impactful learning modalities in healthcare education. The group consists of a diverse scientific pool ranging from healthcare and education experts such as medical doctors and academics all the way to technology experts such as engineers IT specialists and programmers. Research in the MEI research group follows several axes, namely: exploring contemporary pedagogies in medical (and overall healthcare) education focusing on experiential and active learning such as problem based learning and case/scenario-based learning; exploring the interplay between emotion and the learning process; exploring the facilitation of continuous healthcare training for professionals as well as citizens in remote areas by bringing the expert close to the learner and keeping the level of healthcare expertise consistent through Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs); research in ICTs, especially e-learning standards and semantic technologies, aiming to facilitate the aggregation, repurposing and reusability of the ever expanding healthcare educational content with overall goal the consolidation of healthcare education resources.
RISE is the first Research Centre in Cyprus focusing on Interactive media, Smart systems and Emerging technologies aiming to become a centre of excellence empowering knowledge and technology transfer in the region. It is a joint venture between the three public universities of Cyprus (University of Cyprus, Cyprus University of Technology, Open University of Cypurs), the Municipality of Nicosia, and two renowned international partners, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (Germany) and University College London (UK).
RISE is designed to act as an integrator of academic research and industrial innovation, towards the sustainable fuelling of the scientific, technological, and economic growth of Cyprus and Europe. It sets out to meet the challenge with a total potential funding of more than 40 million Euros for the first 7 years, from the Horizon 2020 Teaming Action, the Cyprus Government through the Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development, the European Structural and Investment Funds, the project partners and multiple other sources. The business plan of RISE is specifically tailored for long term sustainability and growth. Rise participates through SMART, UBIQUITOUS, AND PARTICIPATORY TECHNOLOGIES FOR HEALTHCARE INNOVATION MRG, RISE RESEARCH CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE which focus on smart, citizen-centred eHealth and mHealth interventions, leveraging mixed reality technologies, edge computing diagnostics, and big healthcare data analytics, underpinning P4 medicine (predictive, preventive, personalised and participatory); and COGNITIVE AND CLINICAL APPLICATIONS MRG, which focus on the development and validation of Virtual Reality and mobile applications for cognitive training and clinical interventions.
Karolinska Institutet (KI) is one of the world's leading KI accounts for over 40 per cent of the medical academicince 1901 the Nobel Assembly at KI has selected the Nobelare female. Some 80 per cent of KI’s income is devoted to training with 2100 registered PhD students from around tmajor player in FP7, participating in about 190 projects of funds from the National Institutes of Health in the U.
The KI's Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME) is now active in more than 40 national and international research projects in e-learning, medical simulation and medical management. With its unique and translational expertise, KI is a very strong host in many aspects. The LIME staff has participated in several international projects dealing with technical and pedagogical aspects of e-learning and in particular with digitalizing the educational curricula and creating educational content such as virtual patients. LIME staff has also extended experience from Erasmus+ projects such as MEDCIN, WAVES, TAME and OER in Computational Biomedicine but also from national and international projects regarding the exchanges of good practices about around education, pedagogy and re-purposing of content. The role of KI in this project will be to drive the aspects of re-purposing RLOs and to ensure the quality of the project.
