Description

Are you an EPIC student?

Are you a first or second year nursing student at Plymouth University on the Truro campus? Would you like to become involved in EPIC as part of your Wider Patient Engagement?

Are you a university or further education student of design, computing, robotics, or engineering living in Cornwall or prepared to be involved in this Cornish project?

Then why not….

Join us

From 10.30am – 1pm (including a free lunch) on Monday December 18th in the Knowledge Spa, Truro for a workshop looking at digital technologies (including robots) and how they can be used in health and social care. Learn more about how students can be involved in EPIC.

The Ehealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (EPIC) project is a 3-year project aiming to improve the use of digital technologies for health. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund with additional funding from the SW Allied Health Sciences Network, we are helping to establish a community of small companies in Cornwall to provide new products and services.

See our website www.plymouth.ac.uk/research/epic for more details of the project.
