Foundation for Research and Technology

The Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) is one of the largest research centres of Greece with well - organised facilities and a highly qualified staff. The research and technological focus of the foundation is centred on selected areas of great scientific, social, and economic interest.

The Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of FORTH is involved and contributing to the current project. The Institute of Computer Science (ICS), since its establishment in 1983, is a pioneering contributor towards the deployment and adoption of Information Society Technologies in Greece and plays a leading role in worldwide efforts towards the development of an Information Society accessible and acceptable by all citizens. The FORTH-ICS group involved in the current proposal is the Computational Medicine Laboratory (CML Lab). The CML lab at FORTH-ICS has established a tradition of internationally acknowledged excellence in conducting high-level R&D work and in developing innovative systems and services in the wider domain of Biomedical informatics, computational medicine and eHealth.


FORTH will be involved in all work packages of the project and lead WP8: Q&A, evaluation and validation, being in charge of organising the evaluation and validation of the project. FORTH will also have significant contribution to the definition of the architecture, the development of the semantic interoperability environment and of the EURECA software services.
