First Educational Session within the AIDA Project


We’re thrilled to share that our first educational session within the AIDA project, “Guidelines for management of patients with precancerous conditions and lesions in the stomach,” was a huge success!

We had the privilege of having Prof. Mário-Dinis Ribeiro from IPO Porto, Portugal as our esteemed presenter. With his extensive expertise in the field, he shared valuable insights on how to manage precancerous conditions and lesions in the stomach effectively.

Stay tuned for more updates on the AIDA EU project. We’re committed to ensuring you have the resources you need to make informed decisions and receive the best possible care.

Healthcare in the Era of AI
The conference Healthcare in the era of AI hosted by the Healthcare Data Innovation Council was held on 31 May in Zurich, Switzerland. An overview of the Council - The Council, led by Stratejai, was launched in 2022 as an interdisciplinary group of experts promoting the use of data in healthcare. The group includes multiple stakeholders from academia, research, clinicians, technology providers etc. Last year Stratejai released a White Paper supporting the principle "Data Saves Lives" and highlighting recommendations, opportunities and challenges related to using and sharing health data, as well as use cases meant to inspire more innovation in the field. This year, the Council has been focusing on the European Health Data Space and generative AI identifying how emerging frameworks and tools are affecting day-to-day activities, as well as strategic vision and policies across the industry.

During the event, Stratejai will present the preliminary results and takeaways of the 2023 program of the Council through keynotes and panel discussions. Speakers will also introduce several use cases of data and AI applications. At the event, three AIDA partners were present (INCLIVA, Imperial College London, Stratejai) and Ricard Martinez from the University of Valencia, who is part of the AIDA external ethics board.

Aida Consortium Holds General Assembly Meeting at i3S- Porto

The Aida Consortium recently convened its first general assembly meeting on March 4 and 5 at i3S-Porto. The gathering focused on reviewing the project’s progress and outlining future steps to advance the innovative AI diagnostic assistant for detecting lesions before gastric cancer.

Day 1 Highlights

During the first day of the meeting, discussions centred on the application of AI in various areas such as endoscopy and pathology, biomarkers and molecular phenotyping, as well as immunological, molecular, and microbiome characterisation. The consortium also examined different subtypes of Helicobacter pylori alongside dissemination and communication strategies. Additionally, the team explored the synergies between the AIDA and TOGAS projects and the collaborative efforts with the EUCanSCreen Joint Action initiative.

Participants enjoyed a social dinner at the UVA by Calem restaurant to conclude the day’s proceedings, offering a picturesque view of Porto and the stunning Douro River.

Day 2 Focus

On the second day, the consortium delved into Work Packages 5 and 6 presentations. These sessions covered advanced AI analysis, risk factors, personalised applications, collaborative data foundation, governance, and architecture. The insights shared during these presentations are critical for advancing the capabilities of the AI-powered diagnostic assistant envisioned by the Aida project.

With these discussions and exchanges, the Aida Consortium marks a significant milestone in developing a multidisciplinary AI-powered assistant to aid clinicians in gastric cancer prevention. The consortium’s commitment to exploring cutting-edge technologies and fostering collaborations continues to drive the project forward.

Stay tuned for more updates and insights on the Aida project as it progresses towards its goal of combating gastric cancer through AI innovation.

Mediterranean Night of Women Researchers

The Mediterranean Night of Women Researchers was held last 29 September 2023 in Valencia, Spain! We were thrilled to participate in the event and share our mission.

“GROWING HEALTHY” is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyle habits in the community, with a special focus on children and teenagers. Through sports and advocating for nutritious eating, we aim to empower individuals to lead healthier lives.

The AIDA project and Petraher Basketball Club organised basketball-related activities and fundamental knowledge about maintaining a healthy diet. We believe in the power of sports and nutrition to positively impact our well-being.

Throughout the day, there were multiple events, all free of charge for attendees – an opportunity to engage with the research staff of the participating organisations and learn more about our work.

We were delighted to have Ana M. Miralles Marco and Tania Fleitas Kanonnikoff present at the event! Their expertise and passion for our cause surely inspired all who attended.

Together, let’s work towards a healthier future for everyone.
