Freimut Schliess blog post: Digital diabetes and EIT Health

22nd August 2019

Written by head of CLOSE Innovation Project

Prof. Dr. Freimut Schliess has written a blogpost on “digital diabetes” that explains the ways in which EIT Health can assist efforts to improve care for this chronic disease.

Dr. Schliess is the head of the CLOSE EIT Health Innovation Project, an initiative that has spawned activities across all EIT Health pillars. The goal of the CLOSE Innovation Project is to develop a system that supports diabetes patients who use an artificial pancrease to manage their disease.

According to his 29 January 2019 blog post, on the website of EIT Health Partner Profil: “Cross-sectional topics are best addressed in an open and collaborative innovation culture integrating actors from R&D, clinical research, education and training as well as healthcare service provision and reimbursement. … The EIT Health KIC provides such an environment.”
