On 25th and 26th November, DISH held a hybrid consortium meeting in Krakow, Poland hosted by Klaster LifeScience Krakow. Some of the partners were able to finally meet in person, but unfortunately UK Helix partners were only able to join online, to discuss progress and plan for the final activities.
During and following the meeting, we have been working to finalise the findings of the project, and the training development framework that we have developed, which will be launched on the DISH website.
The meeting focused on how to ensure the sustainability and the uptake of the DISH concepts beyond project completion, and partners discussed the lessons learnt and how to translate those in policy recommendations at a regional, national and European level. We also also discussed how to best share the tools produced by DISH so that they can be used in different contexts, and gave a lot of thought to how the website tool would be presented.
The DISH project draws to a close in March 2022, and that will be marked by a two day conference in Brussels – a last chance to see the friends we’ve made in the partner organisations from across Europe.
DISH (Digital & Innovation Skills Helix in Health) is a European project, which focuses on digital competencies needed among healthcare professionals when they need to apply new technological solutions in their work. The eHealth Cluster is a partner in the UK Triple Helix partnership of the DISH project, with Edge Hill University (EHU), and led by NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
