The IHU Strasbourg is among 52 partners from 9 countries of the European Union to launch the TEF-Health project.
The consortium, led by the Charité Hospital in Berlin, aims to develop TEFs – Testing and Experimentation Facilities – to bridge the gap between research and the market, and is co-financed by the European Union for the 5-year duration of research and implementation activities.
Pushing the boundaries of the evaluation of artificial intelligence and robotics in the healthcare sector, the consortium aims to set up testing facilities, including both infrastructure and the definition of best practices protocols in line with European standards, that will facilitate innovation and experimental research. The overarching goal is to improve patient care and ensure compliance with legal, ethical, quality and interoperability standards.
The IHU’s clinical and GPL-compliant preclinical facilities and world-class experienced Research, Medical and Innovation teams will be instrumental in guiding client company teams in the project from planning to implementation.
IHU Strasbourg is a member of the French node, led by the LNE (Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essais), together with the University Hospitals of Rennes, Grenoble Alpes and Lyon, University Grenoble Alpes, EIT Health and CEA Clinatec.
