RIA Success Case: Relevium improving lives for PDAC patients using digital tools
In this article, we will discover the Relevium EU-funded consortium project and its innovations for PDAC cancer patients.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate among other cancers and its staggering fatality rate claims 95,000 lives annually in the EU. Its elusive diagnosis, treatment resistance, and debilitating comorbidities inflict profound hardships on patients and their families.
In response, Relevium, a pioneering European endeavor, is revolutionizing the lives of advanced pancreatic cancer patients through AI-guided multimodal interventions. These interventions encompass a suite of cutting-edge technologies, from multi-sensor smartwatches to innovative remote ultrasound patches, all underpinned by powerful AI algorithms and interactive dashboards.
Fueled by a 6-million-euro grant from the European Commission, this Research and Innovation Action project, fully co-financed, commenced in September 2022 and will run its transformative mission until the end of 2026.
RIA projects usually have a budget ranging from 4 to 15 million euros per project, spanning a timeframe of 36 to 48 months. Funding encompasses 100% of the eligible costs for organizations of all kinds.
Coordinated by the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, the Relevium project empowers patients with digital tools and wearable technology, granting them autonomy in self-management and fostering robust communication with healthcare providers.
