A Digital Leap Forward: Kicking Off ISHA Project Virtually

Updated: May 6, 2023

On December 24th, 2022, our consortium gathered virtually for an exciting project kick-off meeting. We came together to discuss the ISHA ecosystem's ambitions, our long-term goals, and the roles of each partner in the project. Here, we'd like to share some key moments from the meeting to keep everyone in the loop on our progress.

During the meeting, Jotheeswaran Amuthavalli Thiyagarajan from the World Health Organization (WHO) outlined the ISHA ecosystem's ambition and the WHO's role in our project. We discussed how our project aligns with the WHO's mission to optimize healthy ageing and improve the quality of life for older adults worldwide. Next, we delved into the initial tests that will be used in the ISHA ecosystem, presented by Jotheeswaran Amuthavalli Thiyagarajan from the WHO. Cindel Bonneux from UniWeb then showcased the Eforto® system as an inspirational example for the ISHA tools and telemonitoring platform that will be essential parts of our innovative ecosystem. Emilia Gvozdenovic and Ivan Bautmans from VUB presented the revised timelines, partner roles, and actions needed to initiate the clinical studies in Work Package 3 (WP3). We encouraged partners to ask questions and engaged in an open discussion to identify and mitigate any possible risks for project implementation, discussion led by Norberta Balaisyte from UniWeb.

Our virtual project kick-off meeting was a resounding success, as we came together to align our vision, discuss the practical aspects of the ISHA ecosystem, and lay the groundwork for our exciting journey ahead. With a strong foundation in place, we're eager to continue working collaboratively towards our goal of revolutionising healthy ageing for seniors around the world. Stay tuned for more updates on our progress!
