Amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, a series of sectoral (involving SMEs from health, medicine and clinical sectors) and cross sectoral (involving SMEs from health, clinical, IT, ICT, and automation sectors) webinars were organised by DIGI-B-CUBE partners, namely  Business Upper Austria, Ci3, DigitalNorway, INFOPOLE, secpho, and SPI.
The webinars covered a variety of topics within the project framework. In addition to discussions on different technological solutions for medical diagnostics, new funding opportunities including the DIGI-B-CUBE Open Call were introduced and explained. The webinars also facilitated development of consortia for project applications.









Key outcomes of the webinars

Knowledge Transfer: In addition to gaining general understanding of the sectoral aspects, the webinars involved sessions to present and discuss novel digital technologies for better healthcare with a strong focus on the cross-sectoral aspects of health and IT. Technologies used for digital health including Artificial Intelligence, robotics, machine learning, mobile apps, sensors were discussed.

Funding opportunities: The webinars served as excellent platforms for the attendees to understand and clarify aspects related to the DIGI-B-CUBE Open Call. In addition to the Q&A discussions that were developed as a result, the webinars also encouraged matchmaking activities. The project team facilitated formation of consortia for Open Call applications.

Engagement and networking: Representatives from SMEs (from various sectors) and other organisations (including intermediaries) participated in the workshops. Special attention was given to network and discuss bilaterally and multilaterally in order to foster collaboration between health and IT sectors. Participants got the chance to also discuss project ideas for the DIGI-B-CUBE calls.

Future activities: Project DIGI-B-CUBE offers SMEs the opportunity to meet the identified challenges and solve them in international cooperation projects and the DIGI-B-CUBE open call has been accordingly defined for funding the SMEs. These webinars acted as information hubs for upcoming cross-sector workshops and other opportunities to meet and network with international companies.
