CEI Cooperation activity
The Spring School, in line with the mission of SSIC-HECE and Biomedical and Clinical engineering Group of the University of Trieste, is thought to be a good example of how a synergy of technical, methodological and economic issues is the correct mean to create the e-health future in the enlarged Europe. The main objective of the Spring School on “ICT, economical and organizational issues for e-health integration in the enlarged Europe” is to offer to participants from CEI countries high level education and training on technical, economical, organizational and law-oriented initiatives and issues for e-health integration in the enlarged Europe.
The first six editions, organized by SSIC-HECE of University of Trieste, were held in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2014 and 2015 at University of Primorska (Koper, Slovenia) with the participation of students and speakers from many CEI member states (Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia). This CEI Cooperation Activity has proved a large success in the previous editions, with a large number of actively participating students (up to 78 in 2008). The prestigious International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) endorsed the 2007 and 2015 editions. In 2008, the Spring School joined with the activity of the INTERREG III, an Italian-Slovenian project “ISCELS”, with the cooperation of the ALADIN network (Alpe Adria Initiative Universities’ network).
The 7th edition of the Spring School will take place in Koper (Slovenia) from 22nd to 24th May 2017.
