The aim of the IDIH project is to promote and increase international cooperation to advance digital health in the EU and key strategic countries to support active and healthy ageing through innovation. IDIH will identify shared priorities and set up a Digital Health Transformation Forum as a long-lasting and expert-driven catalyst to foster collaboration between the EU and five strategic third countries, i.e. Canada, China, Japan, South Korea and the USA. Overall, the IDIH project sets 4 targeted objectives. First, to support the definition of common priorities to enhance strategic international cooperation in digital health in line with policy orientations through a thorough analysis of priorities in Europe and each of the strategic third countries and close involvement of the relevant funding agencies. Secondly, to provide specific contributions to the international dialogue in digital health with the creation of a Digital Health Transformation Forum acting as umbrella for high-level experts in four thematic groups (Preventive care, Integrated care, Independent and connected living and Inclusive living). Thirdly, to facilitate the exchanges between RTI stakeholders from the EU and strategic third countries in digital health through international workshops, promotion of cooperation opportunities (guidebook, webinars, helpdesk) and joining forces with other initiatives. Fourthly, to foster international collaboration for digital solutions for health care benefitting the society and industry through networking and co-creation sessions in RTI workshops.
