CollibriWOMEN- Second Chance For Colibri Birds: Empowering and Increasing Capabilities Of Women-COLIBRIWOMEN Erasmus+ Action 2: Strategic Partnership Projects. The Ehealth unit role in the project is to contribute to the creation of a Distance Learning Platform to inspire female entrepreneurs in Greece and Turkey to overcame barriers and take their businesses to the next level.

HealthCASCADE – Evidence-based co-creation methodology for closing the implementation gap between knowledge and action in health promotion.”(HORIZON 2020/Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (MSCA-ITN)-Grant Agreement No 956501). The aim of the ehealth unit task will be to develop, experiment and validate open-source disruptive technologies, platforms and tools to enable Big data, AI and knowledge management techniques to facilitate evidence-based co-creation services in Health Cascade use cases.

The ehealth unit  together with the Spin Off company Syndesis Ltd will implement the QKD4IntelligentHealth  pilot within the realm of the OPENQKD project ( The aim of the project is to set up  a  real-world  use  case  where  QKD  technology  will be applied within NCSRD campus to  demonstrate  the  secure  data  transfer  of  encrypted  EHR  datasets  to remote  servers  for  analysis  with  AI  algorithms

The eHealthUnit will implement the iwelli4ageing pilot within the framework of the  Gatekeeper project. The pilot implementation starts on 1/1/2022 and has duration 12 months.

The iwelli4ageing pilot aims to integrate Electronic Health Records with the Gatekeeper platform and:

  • Simplify the implementation of IoT services for end users of the EHRs utilizing the Gatekeeper platform
  • Set up a more complex ecosystem of services in the platform to enchance the diagnostic, prevention and disease management capabilities for multimorbidity patients with cardiac diseases.
  • Set up an open-source plugin (Infobutton tool) that augments electronic records (EHRs, PHR) with intelligent search engines capabilities able to index and look through specific domain knowledge to guide the optimal treatment and support of multimorbidity patients.

We expect the proposed experimentation to prove that applying open-source IoT platforms like the Gatekeeper one can lead to better prevention and chronic disease management services.

The EU-funded VEDLIoT project develops an IoT platform that uses deep learning algorithms distributed throughout the IoT continuum.
