Second PROMISE multiplier event was held in Split at MedILS on 27th August 2022. 78 participants participated in the conference, including 57 international participants.
This multiplier event was organized in the similar format as was the first one. In the morning session, Project Coordinator Branka Bernard opened this final conference on PROMISE project, introduced the project, P4 medicine, Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and the main partners. Following that, each partner institution provided a short lecture about the overview of each module (Personalised, Participatory, Preventive and Predictive Medicine), its organization, main topics the students learned about, what were their individual and group assignments and shared with the audience some interesting highligths from each module. Apart from that, each presentation included an introduction to what each P stands for and why P4 medicine is the future of healthcare.
During lunch, PROMISE partners, PROMISE students who attended the conference and participants could network, discuss more about the P4 medicine and the potential to organize similar educational lectures or workshops in their respective universities, schools or organizations; e.g. teachers from Secondary Vocational School Silvije Strahimir Kranjčević Livno were enthusiastic to collaborate with our Youth Association PROMISE who could organize lectures on P4 medicine for their students.
After lunch, P4 medicine and RRI Fair started. During the Fair, participants were involved in various activities such as second-generation PROMISE students shared their experiences and presented their own projects, interactive discussion on what is bioinformatics and how one can use these big data to be translated into clinical practice, workshop organized by prof. Donatella Verbanac (PROMISE partner from UNIZG) who had discussion with participants on the various prevention topics and communication/group work strategies, and organizers of Summer Science Factory had one fun interactive activity for the participants.
