Applications Now Open to EIT Health Training Programme on Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare
EIT Health Latvia has opened applications to a ten-week training programme on artificial intelligence (AI) - HelloAI Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) Online. The programme is organised by the Health Community of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT Health) in cooperation with the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, GE Healthcare Center and the LEITAT Technological Center.
HelloAI RIS Online looks at different AI-related areas: the basics of AI, AI terminology, machine learning, image analysis, AI laboratory practice and AI in radiology.
The programme is free of charge for participants selected through a competition.
Students, researchers and professionals from medicine, engineering and business are invited to apply.
‘This programme is particularly popular in Latvia. Last year, the largest number of participants (14%) were from Latvia. We are pleased that the EIT Health Hub at Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) has managed to make this programme so popular. We have pulled ahead of our colleagues in larger countries such as Poland, Portugal and Italy, with whom we cooperate on a daily basis as part of various EIT Health activities,’ said Baiba Pētersone, Director of the RSU International Department.
EIT Health highlights the role that AI plays in finding innovative solutions to make healthcare more accessible and patient-friendly. EIT Health seeks to complement traditional healthcare study programmes that do not include AI issues, by offering this training programme to various European healthcare partners.
More than 800 participants from different countries have graduated the programme since 2018.
