Brief description and aims of work

The Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) is one of the largest research centres of Greece with well-organised facilities and a highly qualified staff. The research and technological focus of the foundation is centred on selected areas of great scientific, social, and economic interest.

The Institute of Computer Science (ICS), since its establishment in 1983, is a pioneering contributor towards the deployment and adoption of Information Society Technologies in Greece and plays a leading role in worldwide efforts towards the development of an Information Society accessible and acceptable by all citizens. The FORTH-ICS group involved in the current proposal is the Biomedical Informatics Laboratory (BMI Lab). The BMI lab at FORTH-ICS has established a tradition of internationally acknowledged excellence in conducting high-level R&D work and in developing innovative systems and services. Its research activities focus on the development of innovative computer methods and tools in the area of medical and biomedical informatics, ehealth, m-Health, medical imaging and bioinformatics. Recently the lab is also focusing its R&D activities on biomedical modelling and simulation in the wider VPH research context. The laboratory is currently involved in several projects and initiatives related to the topics of the project.
