Travelling abroad for short trips or longer stay is more common than ever. As the mobility of people increases, also the need for healthcare services while abroad is increasing.
Through a pre-commercial procurement programme new innovative technologies will be developed to enable the access to personal health information by the caregivers and by the individual when needed.
To promote this, the DECIPHER PCP  consortium will run a single joint Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) programme and the call to tender - worth 900.000 Euros in total - which will be launched in the autumn of 2013. But before that there is this Market Consultation Day.
European SMEs, spin offs, start ups, large enterprises, research and technology centres, etc active in the sectors of eHealth, mobile applications and security are invited to join the event.
During the Market Consultation Day attendees will be provided with an overview on the DECIPHER procurement objectives, on the Pre-Commercial Procurement process and will have an opportunity to pose questions to the procuring authorities.
The registration to this event is free. The registration form and the most updated information regarding the event are available at the project website .
This event will be held as satellite event of the MIHealth Forum , June 26th- 28th 2013 at FiraBarcelona, Plaza España, Barcelona (Spain).
