REBECCA project to participate in the 4th Meeting of Minds of the Cancer Survivorship – AI for Well-being Cluster
The REBECCA project will be participating in the 4th Meeting of Minds of the Cancer Survivorship – AI for Well-being Cluster, which will be taking place online on 23 February from 10.00 to 17.00 CET and will continue on 24 February from 10.00 to 15.00 CET. The event titled ‘How can new technologies better support patients?’ aims at engaging patients to gather feedback from end-users.
On the first day of the event, the patient representatives from AMAZONA will take part in a roundtable discussion on engaged Cluster projects, which will take place from 15.50 to 16.45 CET. On the second day of the event, Dr Ioannis Sarafis from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Mr Lazaros Apostolidis from the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas will jointly present the project vision and the progress on the two core prototype technologies that are under development: the REBECCA patient application and the REBECCA web browser plug-in. The presentation will take place from 14.05 to 14.35 CET.
This is the first event of the Cancer Survivorship – AI for Well-being Cluster open to the public. As cancer patients are the target end-users of the Cluster, they will have a unique opportunity to share their feedback on the digital, AI-based tools that the Cluster members are designing to improve cancer patients’ and survivors’ Quality of Life. The Cluster members will present the projects, providing an overview of their work, the scope of their research and how they apply new technology in the design of solutions.
Attendance is free.
About Cancer Survivorship – AI for Well-being Cluster
Cancer Survivorship – AI for Well-being Cluster is a group of EU-funded projects focused on designing AI-based, user-centric, digital assistive tools for cancer patients’ and survivors’ well-being. The Cluster has been initiated at the end of 2020 by the FAITH project with the motto ‘We don’t work in silos’.
All projects participating in the Cluster have at least two things in common. Firstly, they are addressing the issues of mental health, well-being, depression, and patient support. Secondly, they adopted a participatory research vision, sharing a common approach. Therefore, building on this shared common ground, the Cluster members are collaborating as a collective unit to ensure that they adopt a highly user-centric approach.
The Cluster is engaging different external stakeholders and end-users to obtain their views and to verify and validate the ongoing work of the projects.
The REBECCA project joined the Cluster in January this year. Other projects in the Cluster are:
