e-Health: Personalised Prevention

25 July - 5 August 2022

Tallinn, Estonia

Digital technologies have an enormous impact on individual health and society’s well-being. New digital solutions and services are needed for better personalization, prevention and improved patient care to better respond to the future challenges of rapidly changing health care delivery.

The world is constantly changing, and it can and will happen because of various reasons. It can happen because of a global pandemic, economic crisis, climate change, extinction of some species etc. The fact of the matter is that everyone of us will experience change in their life in a bigger or smaller scale. The question is: How can we better prepare for the challenges that occur with any kind of change? Can we prevent some of the struggles that occur before, during or after the change?

At this summer school, we will explore, how to support the transition and build a bridge between the old and new realities in the healthcare field. This e-Health summer school focuses on the interaction between healthcare research, education, and business. Based on real-life use-cases that focus on the prevention of change related challenges, participants will develop products or services for improved health systems, to make them more efficient, accessible and value-providing.

The summer school will provide knowledge on the specificities of digital healthcare, change management and theoretical approach to prevention. In 2 weeks, the teams will have developed real-life prototypes for solutions that tackle some of the most burning problems in the field.

Participants will have a first-hand experience of how innovation works in the unique market of healthcare. Ideas generated during the summer school may also inspire the partner organizations to pursue further development towards products and services.

Local healthcare institutions will contribute business cases to give a starting point for the idea development. Representatives of medical centres and institutions, insurance, doctors, and nurses will be supervising the participants' work and contribute their expertise.

The summer school will be organised by Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech).

Each programme has a focus on business innovation and entrepreneurship, there is no need to have specific technical, healthcare or prevention background to join our Summer School.

Rafael Muñoz Gómez - "Very glad to have participated in the EIT Digital 2020 Rennes Summer School - Unleashing the power of circular city data. It was a really unique online learning experience. I am very grateful for all the effort made by the people from the University of Rennes 1 and EIT Digital. Special thanks to Alvaro Pina Stranger and all the mentors: Alberto Tejero Lopez, Maud Serpin, Aude Castan, Francois Huber, Serdar DrZero and Véronique TRUB."

Marta Mazzi -"From August 2nd to August 14th I participated to the EIT Digital Summer School in "Healthy Lifestyle and Behavioural Changes" (online edition). It was a pleasure to work on the case study proposed by Lars Mulder regarding childhood obesity together with my teammates Przemysław Lewandowski, Marta Bertran Ferrer, Juba Saadi, Juta Jaama and Juan Álvarez Fernández del Vallado. We worked hard together coming up with a winning solution: Lola the Carmanyola. A smart lunchbox targeted toward children connected to an application to be installed on the parent's smartphone. A big thank you to our mentors and tutors Ákos R. Wetters and Peter Langela which helped and supported us all along our journey."

Vinko Mlačić - "It has been a month since I attended the EIT Digital Summer School hosted by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. The theme of the Summer School was "Disrupting Finance with Digital Technologies". We received lectures about the most significant topics in digital finance from industry experts. My team and me had the daunting task of adapting online and mobile banking to the elderly. I would like to thank the coach team (Alessandro T. and Balazs Horvath) that helped us a immensely with the I&E work and for their efforts in keeping the atmosphere light and fun with the social activities. Although the format was remote, the organization of the Summer School did an excellent job at giving us the best possible experience. Furthermore, having an experience of working in a team remotely is definitely a plus in these times. All in all, a great experience. The thing I am the happiest about was the opportunity to meet so many interesting people!"
