ICTUSnet builds a path towards a better knowledge of stroke care strategies. It aims to transform lives of stroke patients and to improve their life quality

About the project

ICTUSnet has the mission to create a network of collaboration between different regions of southern Europe formed by patients and professionals from different areas related to stroke and, at the same time, to create research infrastructures that incorporate innovative data analysis technologies to improve stroke care systems and subsequently reduce the impact of the disease on the population.

ICTUSnet will be developed by a consortium of 10 partners, gathering together healthcare and research institutions from public and private domain and coordinated by the Agency for Health Quality and Assessment of Catalonia (AQuAS). The consortium represents 6 regions of the Southwest of Europe (Aragon, Balearic Irelands, Catalonia, Navarra, Occitania and North of Portugal), covering a population of ca. 20 M people.
The project was awarded by Interreg Sudoe Programme, which is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
