Project outcomes

Work Packages (WPs) divide the project into smaller sections, based on the type of work they entail. In PREPARE, some WPs are administrative, some focus on technology, and others tackle dissemination. Although each WP is led by a single partner, all consortium members help to complete the tasks within them.​

Led by Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Setting out the ethics requirements that the PREPARE project and consortium should comply with.

Objectives

Ensure compliance with the ethics requirements set out in this work package. 

Led by Radboudumc

Defining the system requirements and functional specifications of the proposed solution using a design-based approach. 

Objectives​​

  • Engaging end-users through co-creation methods to design the optimal PREPARE solution for their needs.
  • Aligning the clinical needs of the patient and healthcare provider with technological capabilities.
  • Identifying comprehensive requirements to guide technological development.
  • Describing the main functionalities of the PREPARE tools.
  • Supporting the definition of technological requirements, refinement of scenarios, and pilot evaluation framework.

Led by KIKLO

Researching and developing the necessary technological tools for advanced data processing pipelines to integrate complex health and socio-behavioural data from multiple sources. Ensuring close collaboration among the development, socio-behavioural and design teams.

Objectives

  • Formatting complex health and socio-behavioural data from multiple sources into a common scheme extending on existing schemes. 
  • Extracting important information from unstructured data using advanced AI multilanguage methods.
  • Enriching data with annotations and labels; storing the data in the appropriate database tables. 

Led by CERTH

Researching and developing the necessary technological tools for robust, transparent, and accurate computational models that guide patient prediction and stratification strategies to improve clinical outcomes. Ensuring close collaboration among the development, socio-behavioural, and design teams for successful implementation of this work package.

Objectives

The developed models provide the following:

  • Model robustness and broad applicability: allowing the use of various condition functions to delegate which patients should be in which groups.
  • Model transparency: assessing the importance of a particular patient metadata for the stratification scenario.
  • Expert interference: allowing the medical professional to interfere with the models, evaluate, and modify the stratas mid-process.

Led by Erasmus MC

Testing and integrating training modules to support operation procedures while continuously developing the PREPARE Decision-Support Platform and Data/Communication Platform.

Objectives

  • Integrating the tools developed in work packages 3 and 4 into the PREPARE Decision-Support Platform.
  • Extending the platform to include unified data and communication exchange capabilities.
  • Enhancing the platform with public engagement and training modules.

Led by University of Milan

Implementing pilot studies, validating and demonstrating project tools, and determining the policy framework and recommendations.

Objectives

  • Validating the developed tools based on actors’ needs and technical constraints.
  • Selecting and defining pilot cases with realistic scenarios for validating PREPARE.
  • Designing and validating the overall architecture.

Led by Trilateral Research

Dissemination activities support the project’s plan for uptake of the PREPARE tool and training modules by healthcare professionals and effective policy change. Communication activities help inform the public about the project’s outputs and results.

Objectives​​

  • Coordinating project-wide communication and dissemination activities to ensure an online presence, project awareness, and knowledge sharing, along with the dissemination of project results.
  • Establishing the PREPARE project as an EU-wide voice synonymous with best practices and innovation in the researching of chronic illness and disability patient care.
  • Implementing an interactive and user-friendly portal to inform the public and relevant stakeholders about project outputs.
  • Designing the training curricula, training modules, and methodologies for end-user training.
  • Building an e-learning platform to host PREPARE training modules.
  • Developing an exploitation plan to ensure the uptake of the PREPARE project by a variety of target stakeholders and end-users.

Led by Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Ensuring the success of the project through appropriate coordination by providing the tools and procedures for the consortium to follow.

Objectives

  • Ensuring project results and objectives are reached within the contractual timeframe and budget.
  • Performing quality control and risk management.
  • Managing innovations generated by the PREPARE project.
  • Managing legal and ethical issues.
