EPIC - University of Plymouth
eHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (EPIC) is a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary project, funded by a grant of £2.7 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the South West Academic Health Science Network (AHSN).
EPIC is fuelled by invaluable input from a large numbers of partners, organisations and individuals across the South West, including healthcare trusts, charities, social enterprises, patient groups and students.
Using this input, EPIC aims to facilitate a sustainable eHealth sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, by maximising innovation networks, sharing expertise and experience from the University and our partner organisations, and providing sector specific hands-on business support.
We showcase different types of technology that can be used within the health and care field - from telepresence, smart speakers and humanoid robots - which aim to assist the provision of outstanding care.
