Online course on the challenges of eHealth

The event is held within the framework of the online course of the ATHIKA project on innovation and eHealth challenges. In total, more than 200 international students have developed their skills thanks to ATHIKA's online course, which was launched on February 8. Through the course, students have been trained to develop innovative health projects from a humanistic perspective. Precisely, the mission of the ATHIKA project is to explore how a humanistic dimension can be introduced in engineering education in relation to health-related technologies. In this sense, the course is fully linked to the objectives of the project: to build a set of advanced training programs for higher education institutions that involve academia, the public health administration, health companies, consultants and entrepreneurs.
