A major national research project led by SDU describes its work in words and moving images
Several research initiatives are under way in Denmark’s largest welfare-technology research and innovation project, patient@home. The University of Southern Denmark is heading the project, which is aimed at solving specific problems at hospitals and in elderly care. A series of short films are being made about the project, partly to make the project’s research activities more accessible to ordinary people.
The first film has been completed. It features a project in which researchers are developing intelligent alarms that are activated when patients with “dormant” symptoms suddenly feel worse.
DKK 190 million
Patient@home is a six-year project with a budget of almost DKK 190 million. It is funded by the Danish Council for Strategic Research, the Danish Council for Technology and Innovation and the Region of Southern Denmark, among others. In addition to SDU, the project involves several foreign partners, other Danish research institutions and 29 companies.
