In the dynamic landscape of digital healthcare innovation, the DIGIT-PRE project stands out as a pioneering initiative aimed at fostering the development and implementation of cutting-edge solutions. As a collaborative effort involving various stakeholders across Europe, DIGIT-PRE offers a comprehensive innovation program designed to facilitate the development and market access of digital solutions for a healthy living, disease prevention and management. Health Cluster Portugal is a partner in the DIGIT- PRE project, focusing on promoting collaboration and knowledge exchange and contributing to the adoption of digital health technologies.

On March 12, 13, and 14 the 10 European partners of the DigitPre project met in Porto for fruitful discussions, knowledge sharing, and strategic planning. Four of the 12 SMEs supported by DIGIT- PRE presented their projects at the ElIS Pitch Stop event. Teams delivered pitches to both experts and peers, followed by evaluation at dedicated expert tables. This helped teams to critically assess their projects, identify gaps, and devise strategic solutions.
