HEART: HEalth related Activity Recognition system based on IoT is an international, inter-sectoral, interdisciplinary project providing Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD Fellowships to 6 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), with the potential to become the leaders of tomorrow in the Internet of Things domain applied to the Health sector.
HEART is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research & innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie – ITN Industrial Doctorate, Grant agreement No. 766139.
The HEART research program aims for a personalized approach of mobile health coaching programs that involve the user and that are tailored to individual needs (putting the user at the HEART of the system). Programs will leverage on a health integrated activity recognition platform that can detect activities from heterogeneous data, using scalable algorithms, while safeguarding the privacy of the person.
The following PhD students (also indicated as ESR, Early Stage Researchers) will collaborate within the HEART ITN research program: 4 PhD students in Information&Communication Technology (ICT), 1 Phd student in legal studies and 1 Phd student in the international business domain.
ESR1 – Health Behavior Analytics on heterogeneous Data
ESR2 – Scalability of data analytics
ESR3 – Scalability of data processing
ESR4 – Privacy and security analytics
ESR5 – Privacy by design and by research. the legal issues from conceptualization to commercialization
ESR6 – Understanding China: from customers’ needs to market penetration
ESR1 and ESR4 will be hired by Philips Electronics Nederland B.V. (the Netherlands);
ESR2 and ESR3 will be hired by KU Leuven (Belgium);
ESR5 and ESR6 will be hired by the University of Macerata (Italy).
PhD Enrollment: ESR1, ESR2, ESR3, ESR4 will be enrolled at the Doctoral School of KU Leuven, while ESR5 and ESR6 will be enrolled at the Doctoral School of the University of Macerata. Tuition fees –where foreseen- will be charged to HEART’s budget
