Digital health is a rapidly growing field that aims to improve healthcare delivery, safety, sustainability, and cost-efficiency through the application of advanced ICT and medico-technical innovations. It involves the development of policies and strategies at the national and global levels, as well as initiatives to promote interoperability among health systems and the use of in silico medicine to improve diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases. We support these efforts through studies and projects.
eCare & Ageing
We provide expertise in policy and strategy development, market trends and validation, and service innovation related to the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to improve care services for older people. We support governments, health and social care providers, and the IT industry to develop and implement eCare services, address market barriers, and ensure sustainable deployment of ICT-supported care systems.
eSkills & Work
Our services in the skills and work domain aim at fostering talent to match education and training with technological development, creating guidelines and curriculum profiles for e-leadership courses, developing and implementing strategies and policies for various organizations, monitoring and forecasting skills and work, and providing education and training partnerships. We support new ways of working to help companies employ an increasingly diverse workforce.
Inclusive society requires sensitivity for justice, creativity, and strategic thinking. Research and policy development are needed to ensure eAccessibility for people with disabilities and the elderly, as digital exclusion remains a widespread issue. Social innovation, particularly digital social innovation, can help address societal challenges, with new products, services, or processes introduced by non-profit organizations or civil society members.
