The growth in the oldest segment of the population, and an increase in chronic diseases, is putting pressure on health and social care costs. EIT Health brings together leading healthcare companies across multiple industry sectors, public and private research centres, and top universities, to create a powerful network of partners with a clear mission: to accelerate entrepreneurship and innovation in healthy living and active ageing by providing Europe’s top talents with new opportunities and resources, for the benefit of all citizens.
 
GEM is involved in different projects of EIT Health :
 
REALWORLD4CLINIC : 2020-2023
RealWorld4Clinic will accelerate market launch of a coin-sized medical device anchored to the fundus of the stomach. There it acquires real-life cardio-respiratory health data for exploitation in drug development and telecardiology. The clinical trial market will be the stepping stone towards outpatient cardiological care – our priority market. We enrich the device by remote monitoring & data exploitation, training & education, and outcome prediction & performance measurement tools. Co-creation at the hearts of clinical contract research & clinical cardiology ensures patient comfort, workflow compatibility and policy compliance. The ambition is to make a significant impact on the real-world effectiveness of treatments by pursuing the convergence of clinical research & clinical care. We will improve the predictive power of clinical trials by 50% and halve the rate of emergency hospitalisations in heart failure patients – leveraging savings in the amount of billions of €.

Linking Urban and Inner-Alpine Green Infrastructure - Multifunctional Ecosystem Services for more liveable territories

01/10/2019 – 30/06/2022
It gathers 14 partners across 6 alpine countries, working together on future-oriented solutions to enhance ecosystem services and green infrastructure networks.
Orchards, forests, rivers, green paths… There is a great variety of spaces connecting mountain ecosystems and urban centres. Each of these natural or semi-natural spaces, also referred as green infrastructures, brings environmental, economical and societal benefits: supply of food, water, materials, recreation areas, tourism, pollination, climate regulation… It is precisely this wide range of benefits, called ecosystem services, that LUIGI explores and intends to strengthen in Alpine, rural and urban areas.
 
 

AI-Bility : Cultivating AI Awareness in Schoolchildren

01/11/2021 – 31/10/2023
We observe the abundance of smart toys, adaptive learning applications, and digital assistants for schoolchildren on the market. These products are artificial intelligence (AI) based conversational agents that can communicate using natural language. The current pandemic challenge probably plays an important role in promoting their adoption. The truth is, however inconvenient, that we still do not know much about how schoolchildren harness these AI-based conversational agents for their benefits. Because of the way they are designed (i.e., real touchable physique versus digital character), schoolchildren may have different kinds of interaction and experience with them. Moreover, they may be perceived differently because of their appearances (i.e., pet-like and human-like characteristics).
This project addresses a discussion that is likely to become more glaring in the next years, due to the increasing adoption of in AI-based conversational agents for learning and leisure activities. We focus on 11 to 13 years old schoolchildren in Liechtenstein, Germany, and France. In this age group, they begin to learn abstract reasoning (Jean Piaget’s concreate and formal operational stage) and develop belief in their own ability to solve tasks together with a sense of identity in relation to their social others (Erik Erikson’s stages 4 and 5 of psychosocial development).
We also take into account the concerns about digital divide between schoolchildren and their caregivers, a cultural gap between digital natives and digital immigrants. By understanding how schoolchildren perceive and interact with conversational agents, we can equip parents and teachers with hands-on know-how in guiding schoolchildren to develop a mindful and healthy interaction with AI-based conversational agents.

Smart Energy Systems Campus : vers la transition zéro carbone

23/09/2020 – 22/09/2026
Ce projet vise à anticiper les nouveaux besoins de compétences et les nouveaux modes d’apprentissage pour les métiers des transitions multi-énergies et numériques.
Construit autour d’un secteur d’activités correspondant à un enjeu de société au niveau national et régional, le Campus participe ainsi au développement économique des territoires et à la compétitivité des nouvelles filières industrielles. Ces liens privilégiés avec les structures de formation (publiques/privées) facilitent l’accueil des apprenants au sein de l’entreprise (formations initiale et continue).
Fort d’un réseau de plus d’une trentaine de partenaires sur le territoire grenoblois et du Pays Voironnais (établissements d’enseignement secondaire et supérieur, structures de recherche, entreprises, collectivités, pôles de compétitivité) le campus a la volonté d’être la porte d’entrée du continuum de formations initiales et continues allant du CAP au doctorat, dans les domaines d’excellence de la transition énergétique.
 

ETIC : EffeTs des Images digitales sur les Consommateurs

01/10/2021 - 30/09/2025
ANR
Le projet ETIC (EffeTs des Images digitales sur les Consommateurs) étudie les influences négatives sur les individus des images publicitaires et promotionnelles digitales. Les individus sont analysés dans leur double hypostase, celle de consommateurs d'images sur écrans et celle de diffuseurs d'images sur les réseaux sociaux. L'objectif est d'analyser les conséquences des stratégies marketing (pouvoir attractif et distractif des images, personnification, expositions répétées) sur les coûts cognitifs et mécanismes de défense psychologique, les comportements problématiques, les émotions à valence négative et autres troubles psychologiques. L'originalité du projet repose notamment sur l'analyse des correspondances et divergences de stratégies entre les professionnels du marketing et les internautes adeptes de l'auto-promotion sur les réseaux sociaux. Le projet a pour finalité de définir des préconisations pour réduire ces effets négatifs en particulier, en passant notamment par des actions de sensibilisation.
 

CAPITALE VERTE - Baromètre des transitions

20/12/2021 – 19/04/2024
ADEME
Le 8 octobre 2020, Grenoble a été désignée lauréate du titre de Capitale Verte Européenne 2022. Ce titre récompense les politiques publiques environnementales menées depuis de nombreuses années sur le bassin grenoblois et les engagements ambitieux pris en la matière à l’horizon 2030. A ce titre et en articulation avec les projets déjà soutenus par l’agence sur le territoire, l’ADEME soutient la dynamique Grenoble-Capitale Verte en apportant son aide à des actions phares déployées par les collectivités et leurs partenaires.
L’objectif de ce projet est de « prendre le pouls » du territoire pour mieux agir avec les habitants, notamment pour les politiques environnementales et l'action publique locale.
Le projet « baromètre des transitions » permettra :
· D’enquêter de manière régulière auprès des habitants du territoire métropolitain sur leurs représentations des enjeux environnementaux, leurs comportements, les leviers d’accompagnement au changement, la réception
voire l’impact des interventions métropolitaines dans ce domaine.
· De tirer des profils qui permettent de mieux cibler le niveau et les modalités de l’intervention publique : typologies par âge/moments de vie ; catégories socio-professionnelles/niveau de revenu ; territoire/type d’habitat et mode de vie urbain ou rural…
· De recueillir un feedback sur des dispositifs (offre de service public, aménagements, règlementation, campagne de communication, etc.) existants ou avant même leur mise en service, afin de tester leur recevabilité et les conditions de leur réussite, selon les profils.
Concrètement, les enquêtes permettront d’alimenter :
- Un état zéro de la situation métropolitaine sur la perception des enjeux environnementaux et les
comportements dans les champs reliés ;
- Une évaluation de la démarche Grenoble Capitale Verte, 6 mois après la clôture de l’année et, si le partenariat
perdure, 5 ans après ;
- Des enquêtes évaluatives pour le plan climat air énergie ;
- Des enquêtes plus courtes sur des thématiques ou des démarches ciblant des changements précis, enquêtes co-construites avec les services métropolitains, ajustées à l’actualité, permettant de mieux concevoir ou d’évaluer des dispositifs ou plus largement le plan climat air énergie.
