The EHFF group, which has as a major player Rosa Sunol’s group from Barcelona, EHFF and Dr Diane Whitehouse from EHTEL, will provide expertise on patient empowerment aspects of this highly technical project. The contract was signed in the last week of November and the project will kick off early next year, when more details of the work plan will be publically available. We should then be able to report the results of the other bids for patient empowerment related ICT bids within the 2015 H2020 projects. For a presentation on SERGAS’ previous work, see here.
