Inauguration of the project implemented under the Horizon2020

We invite you to the inauguration of the international project HeartBIT_4.0 - Application of innovative Medical Data Science technologies for heart diseases, financed under the Horizon2020 program. This is the third project implemented by the University of Economics under the prestigious framework program adopted by the European Parliament and the European Commission.

The author of the project is a team of employees from the Institute of Economic Informatics composed of: prof. Leszek Maciaszek (coordinator and tutor), prof. Bogdan Franczyk, dr Maciej Pondel and dr Artur Rot. As part of the HeartBIT 4.0 project, the team will conduct a series of trainings, workshops, consultations and develop materials for employees of the Department and Heart Clinic of the Medical University of Wrocław, including in the application of modern Big Data technologies, Data Science techniques and machine learning in medicine, and medical data security. Our University together with the Technische Universität Dresden, Universität Leipzig and Vysoká Škola Ekonomická v Praze will act as "Excellence Partner" for the coordinator and main beneficiary of the project of the Medical University in Wroclaw. The duration of the project is 36 months, and its budget is around EUR 788 000.
The inaugural lecture will be held on January 31, 2020 in Hall P1, at 12.30.

As part of Horizon2020, the university runs two more projects: SCALINGS and EURHISFIRM.

SCALINGS - Scaling up Co-creation: Avenues and Limits for Integrating Society in Science and Innovation is a project implemented as part of the competition by 35 European universities. The project coordinator at the University of Economics is prof. Bożena Ryszawska. The guiding idea is to involve society in co-creating science and innovation, as well as the recently popular direction of responsible science and innovation (RRI). The key category in the study is the concept of co-creation and participation in the process of creating innovation. The UEW team studied the economic and financial aspects of implementing new technologies, in particular renewable energy in cities.

The EURHISFIRM - Historical high quality companies level data for Europe project involves collecting, compiling and analyzing historical financial data on European enterprises, including listed companies. The research period includes data after 1815. The main coordinator of the project is the Paris School of Economics, 12 research units participate in it, including the University of Economics in Wrocław, as well as universities from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and the United Kingdom.
Professor Krzysztof Jajuga coordinates the project on behalf of our university, Professor Katarzyna Kuziak also participates in it. The University is responsible for communication and dissemination of information about the project, which is supervised by Renata Gwoździewicz-Pęcherzewska. The effects of the work can be viewed on the website

Horizon 2020 is the framework program for research and innovation, the largest project implemented by the Union in the field of research and innovation. Its budget is EUR 80 billion, of which EUR 2.8 billion will be allocated to research and innovation.
The structure of the program is based on three pillars:
1. Excellent science base
2. Leading position in industry
3. Social challenges in the field of:
Horizon 2020 is a combination of 3 science development initiatives implemented in Europe:
1.7 FP - Framework Program for research and technological development
2. EIT - European Institute of Innovation and Technology
3. CIP - Innovation support instruments of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program
