Dalle Molle Foundation Competition : The winners put new technology at the service of health.
For the third time in a row, the Dalle Molle Foundation has organized a competition to foster the realization – or at least to support the quest for funding - of public interest projects.
This year, two prizes of 10’000 CHF each have been awarded. One to MMHS, an interdisciplinary applied research and development project (R&D) of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO). This project, which is a collaborative effort of the Institute of Information Systems of HES-SO Valais and the Health School of the HES-SO in Geneva, aims at promoting the self-management of patients thanks to IT tools. The second project, by Dr Roger Seiler from the Institute of Marketing Management of the ZHAW School of Management and Law in Winterthur, also brings forward a new technology which allows nursing staff to quickly access the key information about hospitalized patients.
The project “Valais*Wallis Digital”, submitted by Dr François Foglia, Deputy Director of Idiap, has received the jury’s praise. However, the jury did not think it opportune to award a prize to Idiap, which is part of the research institutes created by Angelo Dalle Molle.
