Blockchain for Digital Oncology Care


The planned proposal aims to foster education of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in a project to converge Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technologies for Digital Oncology Care to explore the digital innovation trends that are aimed at building a foundation of trust & personalised health analysis: Interoperability, eHealth Analytics, Personalised Medicine and Integrated Care. These trends are chosen to make the field of Oncology ready for the consequences when the digital technologies are deeply intertwined across the medical and health care value chain. It trains 15 ESRs at world-leading academic institutions and companies, thus forming strong interdisciplinary links between industry, life and medical sciences, and end-users. The project aims to train a new generation of highly qualified ESRs with entrepreneurial competencies in Digital Oncology and eHealth through state-of-the-art research projects. The new trends in AI and blockchain and their implementation in Oncology and Health care system requires highly skilled scientists with interdisciplinary knowledge on medicine, systems biology and computer science, as well as hands-on experience with several interdisciplinary technologies that can optimally translate their research findings into sustainable improvements in Digital Oncology practice. The programme in this project will exploit recent developments in machine learning, privacy and encryption technologies, combine these with systems medicine approaches and ultimately aim for their implementation in the health care system. This specific cross-disciplinary training program will educate young scientists to the next level needed to advance the Oncology research field for the upcoming decennium. The training of ESRs will be complemented with a complete set of transferable skills.
