Lifting the obstacles to eHealth thanks to cooperation between the space and health sectors!
The Workshop of eHealth University
// In partnership with French Institute of Space Medicine and Physiology (MEDES)
Cooperation between the space and eHealth/telemedicine sectors has existed for many years, resulting in successful and lasting collaboration. While the principal areas of collaboration essentially relate to the use of communication services and satellite data, others also exist.
This is why CNES (French National Centre for Space Studies) and MEDES are today initiating an innovative approach: Connect4Health. Working with key partners such as the mutualist group VYV, this initiative aims to support and accelerate the development and deployment of technological innovations in the health sector, particularly in digital health, by integrating data, expertise and resources that the space sector can provide.
Based on collaboration with stakeholders in the medical sector (in its broadest sense), the goal is to bring together health and space ecosystems to tackle the challenges facing the healthcare market on Earth. Starting with common digital health requirements, the programme focuses on productive co-innovations to improve everyone’s health, whether on Earth or in Space!
During this workshop, CNES, MEDES and one of their main health partners, the VYV group, will present the many contributions of space to health, and then their different perspectives regarding the benefits of this transversal approach and the main features of Connect4health.
