What are the challenges to tackle in Paris Region?

Challenge 1: Optimisation of continuous monitoring of strokes in Neuro-Vascular Units (OSCAR)

This challenge concerns patients hospitalised following a stroke and is therefore to document non-invasively and continuously the hemodynamic and respiratory anomalies from their arrival at the Emergency Reception Service until their exit from the Neuro-Vascular Intensive Care Unit (NVICU). This will provide important data on possible anomalies that may require treatment and that would have gone unnoticed

Challenge 2: Remote monitoring of real-life patient data to anticipate the occurrence of complications/degradations in health status (SafeFoch)

After patients leave the hospital, hospital practitioners are victims of the “tunnel effect”: they do not know what is happening until the next consultation (from 10 days post-surgery until several months in oncological monitoring). Having data on these patients in real time between two visits to the hospital would allow practitioners to anticipate complications, adjust prescriptions, avoid unnecessary hospital visits (emergencies, hospitalisation) and obviously improve the state of the patient’s health.

Challenge 3: e-consultations in the management of alcohol dependency (e-Prevent)

There is a gap in the monitoring for patients after hospital or outpatient withdrawal, especially when the patient finds himself in his “consumption” environment, but also a lack of contact with his referring addictologist. The management of an alcohol-dependent patient who has been weaned requires close contact, on demand, to prevent frequent relapses, especially in the first 3 months of consumption. All hospital addiction units could benefit from a platform for e-consultations, accessible to alcohol-dependent patients monitored in the Liaison and Addiction Treatment Teams Unit and to their addictologist physicians, compatible with the telemedicine charter validated by the Order of Physicians.

The Deadline to submit an application: 8 June 2018

PRIMA Call for Proposals: Bridging the gap between potential and actual irrigation performance in the Mediterranean

In the Mediterranean basin, water balances and water used for irrigation including irrigation performance is often lower than potential at the farm and at the water users association level. This gap is evident for average performance, but it is particularly important when the dispersion among farmers and their associations is considered. Attaining Sustainable Mediterranean irrigation requires to assess the real water balances in the area of irrigation, amount of water available for irrigation ensuring that water levels are environmentally safe for ecosystems and other needs. Furthermore, optimising irrigation performance requires to combine technological, managerial and governance innovations taking into account the availability, safety and quality of water resources, existing institutional arrangements, as well as crop agronomy planning.
