Trans2Care project involves and integrates the expertise of 13 research, education, healthcare and technology transfer Institutions.
It aims at establishing a permanent, bi-directional flow of knowledge transfer among the project partners, industry and other stakeholders, so to establish an environment generating innovative products and services for the public healthcare system. In particular, the project addresses questions about prevention, diagnosis and treatment of widespread diseases.
Innovations will be developed on the basis of unmet medical needs expressed by the healthcare personnel; they will be made possible thanks to the close interaction among researchers and industry, so translating scientific and technological expertise into products.
These innovations will enable the improvement of healthcare system and the creation of new jobs for highly qualified young workers.
The project will also aim to ensure the sustainability of the partnership beyond the end of its activities.
