Overview

Center for Digital Health and Well-being

The digital society is a data-driven personalised world. Consumers are asking for goods and services specifically tailored to their intrinsic characteristics and preferences. This movement is currently intensifying as we enter the post-digital era: each of our actions can be tracked and analysed (data analytics) and then can feed predictive models (Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning) which will define and design what will be offered next to us and health care makes no exception to this.

Aim:

 To develop activities contributing to engaging and empowering people and communities to live better, healthier and a happier life, by the use of digital technologies and services, and by this improve Public Health.

 Objectives
