The Eastern Corridor Medical Engineering Centre (ECME)

ECME is a project supported by the EU’s INTERREGVA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programme Body (SEUPB). It is a transformative cross-border research and innovation programme spanning Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland and adopts an inter-disciplinary approach to remote monitoring and home-based self-management for older persons with cardiac conditions.

ECME is a cross-border partnership between the Nanotechnology and Integrated Bio-Engineering Centre (NIBEC) at the University of Ulster (UU), the Cardiac Research Unit at the Southern Health and Social Care Trust (SHSCT), NetwellCASALA and the Regulated Software Research Centre (RSRC) at Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT), the Biomedial Diagnostics Institute (BDI) at Dublin City University (DCU), Applied Research for Connected Health (ARCH) at University College Dublin (UCD) and the Department of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Science/Rural Health at the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI).

ECME creates a cross-border centre of excellence in the field of cardiovascular medicine with a focus on wearables and remote monitoring through PhD studentships, industry engagement, dissemination and platform development.
