Open Workshop

 

The second international RAIS workshop with the title “Photonics technologies for rapid diagnosis of sepsis and other conditions” was held on 6th – 7th November 2017 in the Hospital Saint Pau, Barcelona. The workshop was focused on the RAIS project, the vision and the achievements, and in particular on the aim to connect with potential end-users and industry.

Two keynote speakers, Prof Cristina Prat Aymerich from the Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol and Dr. Abderrahim Oussalah from the University Hospital of Nancy, presented and discussed the medical background of bacterial infections and Sepsis detection, including the clinical need for the new RAIS device. This was followed by presentations from several RAIS partners, followed by a live showcase and demonstration of the RAIS device. In addition, presentations were given by a number of other related H2020 Photonics projects.

Overall, the RAIS workshop was a great success, with a broad audience of more than 60 people in attendance, including clinicians, scientists and representatives from industry. We increased the awareness for the project within potential end-users and in related industry. In addition, synergies between complementary H2020 projects were intensified.
