DE and e-Health
Based on our experience in innovation management, two Thematic R&D Programs for e-Health and Remote Education (DE) were launched in 2014. The goal was to develop applications that enhance remote collaboration in these two areas of knowledge.
The program received funding from the Ministries of Health and Education, the Department of Labor Management and Health Education (SGTES) and Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Capes). From 104 proposals received, five projects were selected: three for remote education (e-learning) and two for e-Health
