The eHealth Eurocampus project aims at preparing innovative professionals able to cope with the challenge of fostering a spirit of innovation in eHealth in Europe as the way forward to ensure better health and better and safer care. The main objectives of the eHealth Eurocampus are improving the relevance and quality of higher education in the field of ICT applications for health, and fostering employability through curricula adaptation to labour market needs and the development of entrepreneurship skills. The eHealth Eurocampus will implement new and innovative teaching methods that will be tested through joint learning activities (summer schools), which will be used later on in different master courses, and eventually a Joint Master Degree. The project beneficiaries will be students and staff, which will receive special training, as well as patients in general, in particular elderly people and people with physical and cognitive disabilities, who will benefit from the outcomes of the research conducted within the partnership.The results and dissemination activities will be designed to ensure that the eHealth Eurocampus will have a strong impact on both participating and outside organisations. Key elements will be a closing seminar (multiplier event) and the active involvement of teachers and researchers, both from IT schools and medical schools, who will spread the results, as well as the openly available results themselves, accessible through a specific website, which will make it easy for other universities to exploit the methods and materials developed within the project. The eHealth Eurocampus has a truly European perspective, as it develops teaching materials in collaboration between universities and allows for testing them on a highly diverse set of students. The project partners include 8 higher education institutions, which represent 7 IT schools (Barcelona School of Informatics, Polytechnic School of the Balearic Islands, Polytech Engineer School of Montpellier, ISIS Engineering School of Castres, Glyndwr University of Wales, Hochschule Ulm, and the Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus) and 3 medical schools (Faculty of Nursing and Physiotherapy of the Balearic Islands, Medical School of Cyprus, Sant Joan de Déu University School of Nursing - Barcelona), a regional centre of technological development and entrepreneurship promotion (Bit Foundation of Mallorca), and a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC Pyrenees-Mediterranean). The partnership represents different European health management systems; this variety, which is present at the very heart of the consortium, will help to form professionals aware of the European diversity in this area and prepared to adapt themselves to different environments and to find jobs outside their own country more easily.
