digitalLIFE4CE is a project funded by Interreg Central Europe. Nine partners from seven countries work together and are looking for novel solutions in the field of digital integrated healthcare systems. The fragmentation of the health care system as well as weak cooperation between relevant actors negatively affect regional authorities, care providers and citizens in many regions of central Europe. To answer these weaknesses, the project brings together policy makers, experts from research and development and actors relevant for implementation. Their goal is to make digital healthcare solution accessable for the citizens of Central Europe for providing the best healthcare on the market. The project is funded from May 1st 2017 till October 31st 2019 and co-financed by ERDF with 1.274.752,00 Euro. It aims to implement additional projects in partner regions afterwards to maintain the goal of the project. digitalLIFE4CE project team consists of University of Applied Sciences Burgenland (AT), Saxon State Ministry for Social Affairs and Consumer Protection (DE), Association for Promoting the Healthcare Business in the Region of Leipzig e.V., Bruno Kessler Foundation (IT), Autonomous Province of Trento (IT), Technology Park Ljubljana Ltd.
