CrowdHEALTH has set up an external advisory body composed of distinguished experts from academia and industry. The impact creation board (ICB) objective is to provide to the consortium with feedback regarding technical issues and comment on project’s dissemination and exploitation. The main aim of this initiative is for the consortium to create links with different scientific communities related to healthcare domain. Therefore, the project goals and objectives will be aligned with industry and research demands.
CrowdHEALTH project was presented during a TELCO meeting as well as during a workshop organised by CrowdHEALTH consortium at ICIMTH 2019. ICB addressed questions related to privacy and security issues, key issues for public health policy makers, limitations to the current technical approach, challenges that should be taken into account in data collection, data analysis, modelling, methods and tools for optimal dissemination and exploitation.
An open discussion regarding the aforementioned topics followed. ICB was also requested to fill in questionnaires. The completed questionnaires were collected, the data was analysed and the extracted knowledge was shared with the consortium.
