EBRAINS-supported project selected for EIC Transition call for proposals

EBRAINS is proud to support the PHRASE project which has been selected for the first-ever European Innovation Council (EIC) Transition call for proposals. The project aims to deliver prognosis and intervention protocols for AI-based stroke rehabilitation.

The EIC Transition scheme was set up to translate research results generated by EIC Pathfinder pilot projects and European Research Council (ERC) Proof of Concept projects into commercially viable entities, by testing the technologies in real world settings and creating the business case to bring the innovations to the market. The 42 selected projects will receive €99 million in EU funding altogether.

The PHRASE (Personalised Health cognitive assistance for RehAbilitation SystEm) project responded to the EIC Transition Medical Technologies and Devices challenge.

PHRASE will be validated with 1000 patients across 20 hospitals in Europe. The project seeks to do the following for stroke patients:

  • Shorten hospital stay
  • Reduce personnel and transportation costs
  • Improve functional recovery and retention

Eodyne Systems will lead the project, with support from high-level partners in the field such as EBRAINS, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and Saddlepoint Science Ltd.

"It is an honor to be part of the 42 projects selected by the EIC Transition call," says Santiago Brandi, CEO of Eodyne Systems. "The PHRASE project and its support from the EIC mean that we will be able to transfer top-level research into products that will create real business opportunities and, above all, improve the recovery and quality of life of stroke patients."

“EBRAINS is proud to support the PHRASE project and help deliver better neurorehabilitation to patients through wide-ranging use of its data tools” says EBRAINS CEO Paweł Świeboda.

About the European Innovation Council

The European Innovation Council was launched by the European Commission to support the commercialization of high-risk, high-impact technologies in the European Union. It focuses mainly on breakthrough, deeptech and disruptive innovation, targeting especially market-creating innovation.

About EIC Pathfinder projects

With its Pathfinder programme the EIC supports the exploration of bold ideas for radically new technologies. It welcomes the high-risk / high gain and interdisciplinary cutting-edge science collaborations that underpin technological breakthroughs.

About Eodyne Systems

Eodyne’s expertise is based on the development and integration of complex architectures of advanced interactive systems involving technologies for virtual and augmented reality, ambient and wearable sensors, robotics, machine perception, cognitive processes and user experience.
