CHERRIES Murcia final workshop | The RRI bet in the regional healthcare sector

Opening of the CHERRIES Murcia regional workshop

Last October 4th, CHERRIES project has been presented in the Region of Murcia to more than 50 stakeholders including innovators in healthcare and ICT, entrepreneurs, public and private institutions and innovation agents.

During the event, the regional partners (CEEIM, Murcia Region, Ticbiomed, Sistema Murciano de Salud) presented the CHERRIES methodology and the way it was applied to the territorial context by implementing RRI processes in the healthcare sector.

The attenedees had also the chance to learn more about the prototype that was co-developed during the project implementation to early detect the progression of Multiple Sclerosis: a co-creation process that involved several stakeholders, including entrepreneurs, patients, healthcare professionals and researchers.

Adrián Zittelli, Director-General for the European Union Affairs for the Region of Murcia and Representative of the CoR Region of Murcia, explained that “the joint participation of users with researchers and sector professionals, from the very beginning of the R&I processes, offers innovative companies the advantage of betting on a more democratic and efficient procedure while reducing the time to get research results. Moreover, the innovative CHERRIES methodology contributes making the Region of Murcia a benchmark in the health sector, therefore becoming a pole of attraction for companies active in the sector.”
