TBIcare public symposium

The symposium is a deliverable of TBIcare WP2. Its main aim was to disseminate the results of TBIcare in-depth to a wide public (including clinicians, industry and the general public). It was held in conjunction with the Turku Traumatic Brain Injury Symposium (TTBIS2014) in Turku, Finland on 17 January 2014.

The scientific programme of the TBIcare workshop covered the scientific and technological objectives of the project. The project manager introduced the overall project, whereafter mainly WP leaders and key researchers presented their results: clinical needs and implications, requirements for diagnostics, the decision support system and its validation, modelling, image analysis and biomarkers. These results were then put into context with other closely-related research initiatives presented by invited speakers from ‘sister projects’ like TRACK-TBI, CENTER-TBI and the neuoinformatics view of INCF.

Proceedings of the symposium, in the form of presentation handouts, can be found via the links below.
