Main Event ERN 2023 -UMU-Workshop-“CORNER EUROPEO”
The outreach activities organised in the EU CORNER are as follows:
• Zebrafish helps to discover new treatments for chronic inflammatory diseases:
Activity for all ages where it is intended to raise awareness of the most common inflammatory diseases and the lack of effective treatments, as well as explaining how we use the zebrafish model within the European INFLANET project to understand how inflammation spreads through the body and the search for new treatments taking advantage of the unique advantages of zebrafish.
Responsible researcher: Victoriano Francisco Mulero Méndez, researcher at the Department of Cell Biology of the University of Murcia.
• Res- Q + and STRATIFI AI
The general public will be able to attend the presentation of the international projects Res-Q + and STRATIF-AI in which the University of Murcia participates.
RES-Q+: Comprehensive solution to improve health care using the global register of quality in stroke care.
RES-Q+ is an international research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme. With a budget of 8 million euros and a four-year implementation period (2022-2026) it brings together experts from 13 European countries as well as the UK, and includes international organisations such as the World Stroke Organisation (WSO) and the Stroke Alliance in Europe (SAFE), among others.
The ultimate goal of the project is to make medical care for people who have suffered a stroke much more efficient and effective. One of the project’s contributions is a system that will facilitate the work of doctors and nurses. Instead of having to write all patient information manually, this system will automatically collect important hospital data. A virtual assistant will review this data and give recommendations on how health care can be improved.
In addition, the project will include a mobile phone app that will help patients after they leave the hospital. With this application, doctors will be able to monitor patients’ recovery and offer them personalized advice. This will make follow-up visits more effective and patients receive the best possible treatment for recovery.
The project will create an open European space to share data on the care of stroke patients, both legally and technically. It is planned to establish a legislative framework for the European Union and to develop a communication interface for connecting other healthcare systems.
In short, RES-Q+ seeks to make life easier for both medical professionals and stroke patients, using the latest technology to provide more personalized and effective care.
STRATIF-AI: Continuous stratification to improve the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of stroke patients using digital twins and artificial intelligence.
STRATIF-AI is an international research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme. With a budget of almost 5.7 million euros and an implementation period of four years (2023-2027), this project brings together experts from private companies, universities and hospitals from 9 European countries, as well as the United Kingdom, to improve the way stroke patients are prevented, treated and rehabilitated.
One of the key innovations of STRATIF-AI is its “continuous stratification” approach. Instead of basing medical decisions on data collected at specific times, such as doctor visits or blood tests, this approach uses algorithms and mathematical models to analyze data in real time. This includes data collected by personal devices, such as activity bracelets, allowing for much more detailed and personalized health tracking.
One of the most exciting tools of the project are the “digital twins”, which are virtual models of individual patients. These twins use advanced technology to simulate how various factors, such as medication or diet, can affect a person’s health at different levels, from individual cells to complete organs. This ability to make detailed simulations has the potential to significantly improve the accuracy and customization of medical treatment.
In summary, STRATIF-AI aims to lay the groundwork for a more effective and patient-centred health care system, with a particular focus on improving stroke prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.

• CyberCamp UMU
This activity will provide the public of all ages with detailed information on the importance of cybersecurity through awareness videos, the completion of a quiz or questionnaire with questions on the subject and the distribution of informative leaflets. Once the day is over, the draw will be held among those who have participated in the realization of the questionnaires and prizes will be awarded. In this activity the general public will also be able to learn through a short informative talk the master of cybersecurity of the Faculty of Informatics of the University of Murcia (FIUM), as well as a research project developed by the FIUM.
Awareness videos and quiz on these topics
1- How much do you know about cybersecurity? (18:00-18:30)
2- Myths about Internet Security True or False? (19:00-19:30)
3- Do you shop online without being given ‘cat for hare’? (19:30-20:00)
4- Do you recognize hoaxes and false news? (20:00-20:30)
5- Do you know the risks your child faces online? (21:00-21:30)
6- Presentation Master cybersecurity or research project.
