Through a coordinated programme of engagement and interaction with the private and commercial sectors, this project will boost the impact of the BlueHealth research programme.

Led by Professor Dimosthenis Sarigiannis, it is hoping to develop innovations in technology, policy and understanding based on BlueHealth findings.

The project will include a number of dissemination activities across the web, at workshops and international conferences, and in novel “innovation slams”.

It will also aim to provide guidance and recommendations on good practice through a series of briefs focused on stimulating business and policy opportunities.

An exciting area of development within this project is the BlueHealth App, a mobile application designed to make results from BlueHealth research accessible and actionable by non-academic users.
