“Health-IoT” kick-off meeting will be held in Shanghai

The 3-year project “Health-IoT: Health-related Activity Recognition System Based on IoT and Data Fusion” has been approved and its kick-off Meeting will take place in Shanghai (China) next 25 July, hosted by Fudan University (the event’s agenda is available for download at the end of this article).

“Health-IoT” is a China-EU international science and technology innovation cooperation project under the National Key R&D Program of China.
The grant for the project has been provided by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China to support the joint research and interaction with the EU H2020 ITN project “HEART – HEalth related Activity Recognition system based IoT”.

The project consortium is led by HEART project partner Fudan University, and it includes both Chinese and European Union’s institutions and companies such as the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Suzhou Institute of Nanotechnology and Nano-Bionics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the University of Macerata in Italy, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium, and Philips Netherlands.

The project partners will collaborate closely following the “industry, university, research and hospital” cooperation model, aiming to develop a novel health monitoring and forecasting platform which would help improving people’s quality of life and reducing medical costs.
