University of Oslo
UiO aims to promote independent, ground-breaking, long-term research. Founded in 1811.

UiO contributes substantially to research, innovation, and education in and outside of Norway. We are a leading European University and the highest ranked institution of education and research in Norway. Cooperation and contact with working life and business is one of many important prerequisites for the university to be able to fulfill its social mission; and excellence in research is a prerequisite for quality in university education.

UiO offers high standard research-based education, and pioneering research for scientific discovery and innovation. International students are welcome to apply for enrollment in 81 study programs in English, of which 8 are PhD programmes. UiO studies are free of charge and one third of all PhD candidates in Norway are admitted to a PhD programme at the UiO. Most candidates are employed as research fellows at the university or another research institution. UiO also provides several academic and non-academic facilities and services to students including a library, sports facilities, study abroad and exchange programs, online courses and distance learning opportunities, as well as administrative services. In Oslo you can combine high-quality education with unforgettable outdoor experiences, both winter and summer.
Our tasks
in the project

As Coordinator, University of Oslo is responsible for all project management activities, and works closely with the Public, EFPIA and IMI2 associated partners for overall coordination and execution of the Gravitate Health project. We also contribute across all WPs and will contribute to develop use-cases and personas, as well as oversee the testing activities in the proof-of-concept scenarios.

Our contribution to the project

Our experience from:

– research studies linked to digital health aimed at developing a citizen-centered digital tool that enables the patient/citizen to utilize their health information in a structured, understandable, accessible and active way (CAPABLE),
– a tablet-based app and accompanying services to postpone undernutrition and associated health problems leading to dependency and increased care requirements (APPETITUS)
– our UiO: eCollab research laboratory for researchers to explore and test practices where physicians, nurses and other health professions develop multidisciplinary teams and collaborate with patients, their next of kin, and HCPs.

We have designed and deployed citizen-centered solutions for medication management and nutrition to promote safe medication use, prevent undernutrition and stimulate empowerment and digital health literacy.
