Connect Health

Using technology to provide healthcare services that are affordable and accessible to many.


The Common Dissemination Booster (CDB) is a brand-new service from the European Commission which encourages projects to come together to identify a common portfolio of results and showscase these to end-users, with an eye on exploitation opportunities.   TEAM ITN is a proud member of the CDB and is working with two other innovative training programmes Connected Health Early Stage Researcher Support System (CHESS) and Cancer: Activating Technology for Connected Health​ (CATCH).

TEAM ITN is collaborating with CATCH ITN and CHESS ITN to help disseminate associated information under an "Connected Health"platform.  CATCH ITN and CHESS ITN are programmes looking at e-health for cancer patients and connected health programmes.  Together the "Connect Health" network will disseminate relevant information to wide audiences.  Information such as end user privacy and policies, well-being apps, connected health frameworks amongst other results will be disseminated to multiple stakeholders.


The common objectives of these three projects are as follows:

  • To raise awareness of each project and to promote the projects to various stakeholders.
  • To encourage researchers to pursue a career in connected health.
  • To improve healthcare delivery through the activities and dissemination of each project.
  • To contribute to improved healthcare by providing better connected-health dissemination as part of Connected Health.
  • To contribute to research and training that ensures inter-disciplinary and inter-sectoral inputs.
  • To share knowledge and research with healthcare stakeholders and the research community.
  • To participate in the discussion and action to improve healthcare globally.

The common audience or stakeholders across this Connected Health platform are:

  • Patients and patient organisations,
  • Healthcare workers,
  • Researchers and research institutions,
  • Educational organisations,
  • Industry, such as health technology industries,
  • Government bodies and European health policy experts,
