Welcome message from the Chair
of the EU/ Erasmus+ project ICU-RERE
On behalf of the Steering groups, I am pleased to welcome you to
be familiar with this new EU/Erasmus+ capacity building project ICU
For those of you who are not familiar with EU capacity building
projects, ICU-RER, allow me to briefly introduce the two concepts.
Capacity-building projects (CBP) in the field of higher education are
transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships
primarily between higher education institutions from Programme and eligible Partner Countries.
The aim of these projects is to support eligible Partner Countries to:
modernize, internationalize and increase access to higher education
address the challenges facing their higher education institutions and systems
increase cooperation with the EU voluntarily converge with EU development in higher education, and remote people to people contacts, intercultural awareness, and understanding.
ICU_RERE project is a tool to achieve the aim of the CBP.
Our project is about “ e.Healthcare Industry Cooperation with University (I C U) to
“Reinforcing of Education- Research” E-Health (RERE) & Medical Links.
The mission of the I C U- RER project is to enforce A Knowledge Triangle (AKT)
Approach to integrate Education, Research and Community (ERC) to provide timely
e.health system focuses on the advances in technology that offer patients, practitioners,
medical centers, and hospitals new and innovative options for high quality and cost effective
e.medical and healthcare. The major four corner stones of the ICU-RER are C A R E:
Creating of a new relationship between the healthcare sector (Industry), health professional and University (Education & Research) a true partnership, where decisions are made in a shared manner including training of physicians through online sources (continuing medical education)
Achieve and Enhance high quality. E-health may enhance the quality of health care for example by allowing comparisons between different providers, involving patients’ additional power for quality assurance.
Research and Evidence based- e.health interventions is knowledge and evidence- based in a sense that their effectiveness and efficiency should not be assumed but proven by rigorous scientific research& evaluation
Efficiency - one of the promises of e-health is to increase efficiency in health care, thereby decreasing costs by avoiding duplication or unnecessary diagnostic or therapeutic interventions,
The consortium members of this project are 18 universities & institutions from Sweden, Italy,
Austria, Estonia, Egypt and Lebanon.
You are most welcome and hope that you find all information &knowledge about the project on this website/homepage.
