NeuHeart included in European Commission Innovation Radar

IT'IS is proud to be part of the NeuHeart project that has been selected to be included in the Innovation Radar, a European Commission initiative to identify high potential innovations and innovators in EU-funded research and innovation framework programmes. The ambition of the initiative is to make information about EU-funded high-quality projects visible and accessible to the public via its platform. The platform allows to categorise EU-funded innovations in terms of e.g., market maturity and disruptive potential.

NeuHeart was launched in January 2019 and is running for another two years. The project aims at developing a neuroprosthesis to restore the vagal-cardiac closed-loop connection after heart transplantation with the promise of a new treatment paradigm for treatment of heart failure. The project consortium is led by the Scuola Superiore di Studi Universitari e di Perfezionamento Sant'Anna (Italy) and, in addition to IT'IS, further includes collaborators of University College London (United Kingdom), the Medical University of Vienna (Austria), the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V. (Germany), and SensArs Neuroprosthetics Sàrl (Switzerland).
