Digital Health and Innovation Cluster BULGARI is a nonprofit organization that supports companies and organizations in the field of digital health and innovation.
We are looking for leading partner in project: “HD HEALTHCARE” which aims to organize a process that crate a network of innovative SMEs.
This process will be implemented via a platform and a network of resources and participants. The co-creation of healthcare solutions will be based on the pull of the end-users’ needs throughout the patient journey. Companies, public services, end-users and communities being part of the value chain will collaborate and co-create innovative and digital health solutions working in networks. These cross country and cross industry networks will be tightly connected and intensely digital on the “HD HEALTHCARE” platform. They will be focused on creating healthcare solutions, starting from the patient journey and dealing with the unmet healthcare needs of the end-users. The main objective of these healthcare solutions will be to support the development of efficient, sustainable, and people-centered healthcare services based on data and technology. The impact of these solutions will be measured by the health outcomes and work flow optimization of the healthcare services. Thus the main issues connected with the fragmented patient journey and the existing silos across different healthcare systems could be solved.
The Value CHANCE project wants to support the creation of local/regional clusters and an international network of clusters with cross-fertilisation capacity among the fields of Cultural Heritage (CH), Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and possibly other sectors as bio- or nanotechnologies, IoT, etc.
The project intends to develop some large-scale demonstrators able to bring together all relevant players to connect different sectors and industries in order to create innovative value chains, linked to the theme of Cultural Heritage Clusters (CHCs) and all technologies related to the productive supply chain of restoration, conservation and valorisation of CH and in developing and promoting culture and CH.
The transnational challenge is to unite protagonists of the CH valorisation and all linked technologies from the Europe area, grouped in clusters, in a unique international network, able to enhance and implement the strength of single enterprises and clusters and multiplying activities, services, opportunities and positive effects:
- networking of actors, also internationally;
- creation of new and innovative crosssectoral value chains from intersection of existing sectors;
- creation and monitoring of economic development through Innovation, ICT, Internationalisation, Social and Environmental Responsibility and Job Training;
- support for innovative projects and collaborative R&D;
- support and suggestions to decision and policy makers about CH.
Operative tools will be produced to enhance exchanges among actors of the different sectors and support creation of new value chains throughout Europe regions.
Local economies will benefit from project through creation of job places, enhancement of cultural and tourism opportunities, better conservation and valorisation of CH.

Summary "De Futuro" is an ambitious, in 2011 established company, focused on the fields of research and development, commercialization of new innovative products and services. The venture is looking for partners to collaborate on a EUROSTARS project proposal. The project aim is to develop Heart Rate Variability (HRV) parameter-based patient’s emotional and physical state evaluation system, which will be used to track patient’s emotional and physical state changes before, during and after procedures in rehabilitation institutions (etc.: sanatoriums, hospitals). “De Futuro” is searching for companies, universities, or research institutes specialized in IT to collaborate on HRV algorithm development and two sanatoriums (one in Lithuania and one in the other EU country) for system prototype testing. Description Problematics In 2017, spending on health care in the European Union stood at 9.6% of gross domestic product, ranging from over 11% in France and Germany to less than 6% in Romania. In most countries, payments for curative and rehabilitative care services made up the bulk of health spending. Taking the European Union as a whole, per capita health spending reached EUR 2 773 in 2017.  Emotion influences human health significantly, especially negative emotion which has been regarded as a non-ignorable factor linking to the increase of health problems. It has been found that chronic experience of negative feelings such as anxiety, sadness and fear expose people to suffer a variety of physical problems such as asthma, headaches, ulcers and heart disease, as well as mental problems such as depression and Alzheimer disease.  Taking this to account, more and more countries understand existing need to invest more in disease prevention though residents psychological and physical state monitoring and improvement. In 2015, over 1 million deaths across EU countries were considered to be potentially preventable through effective public health and prevention interventions. In 2017, 1.3% of GDP or around EUR 194 billion of direct health care spending on a broad range of mental health conditions across the EU. This covers spending on the health services and goods related to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders (including physician visits, hospitalizations and pharmaceuticals). At present, the major emotion recognition methods are subjective psychologist opinion or technology, which usually adopt facial expression, body behavior, and vocal analysis, whose results include too many subjective factors coming from the participants and experimenters, therefore the recognition accuracy has been worsened . Emotion recognition based on physiological signals should be more objective and precise and that can be achieved with electrocardiogram signal (ECG) evaluation, especially knowing fact, that nowadays, more and more companies are developing wearable devices that are able to monitor heart rate and ECG, such as Fitbit, Apple watch, Microsoft Band, and so on, which provide a hardware level guarantee for ECG-based emotion recognition. Moreover, there is no technology for recreational and health institutions as sanatoriums and hospitals to evaluate both emotional and physical state of the patient before and after visiting the institution, which leads to unmeasured effectiveness of the treatment for patient, unfulfilled client’s expectations and unused potential for more costumers attraction. Solution „De Futuro” plans to create a system, which will evaluate patient’s emotional and physical state before and after treatment and measure improvement of it during the treatment. A novel method for negative (stress, anger, sadness) and positive (happiness, neutral) emotions detection via feature fusion from only one-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) signal, which is able to instantaneously assess the subject's state even in real-time events and calculations of its derived heart rate variability (HRV), including linear-derived features, nonlinear-derived features, time domain features, and time-frequency domain features, will be used to evaluate emotional state. HRV also will be used to evaluate physical state of the client. Using whole system recreational tourist will be able to see actual objective improvement of his mental and physical health, sanatorium will be able to use their resources effectively and attract more clients. Main activities 1. HRV and emotion recognition algorithm (HEA) development 2. HEA testing in real life situations 3. Physical fitness level evaluation algorithm (PFLA) development 4. PFLA testing in real life situations 5. System prototype development. Integration of HEA, PFLA and development of user interface with emotional and physical state evaluation before and after rehabilitation procedures algorithms. 6. System prototype testing in recreational business partners institutions.
Partners we are looking for The automatic quantification and recognition of human emotions is a relatively new and fast-growing research area which combines knowledge in the fields of psycho-physiology, computer science, biomedical engineering, and artificial intelligence. We are searching for partners in the fields of recreational business. Sanatoriums We are looking for two sanatoriums (one in other EU country), which main activity will be to implement system testing.
