The Federal Ministry of Climate Action and the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs will invest twelve million euros in six new COMET modules for four years by following the recommendation of an international expert jury.
The new funded COMET Module “Surgical Data for Optimized Therapy” (SD-OpT) by ACMIT is representing an important extension of ACMIT’s research areas, such as sensor-integrated tools, medical IoT, or patient-specific planning tools, which provide an ideal base for “Surgical Data Science” (SDS).
SD-OpT will investigate urgent research questions with high potential in a close cooperation with international high-profile partners from science and industry. Furthermore, SD-OpT will demonstrate the immense potential of SDS by realization of representative and meaningful evaluation cases. The results from SD-OpT will be integrated by ACMIT into advanced “Digital Health driven Therapy Systems”.
