FINKI is a partner in the project NATO mutli-year science for pease project NATO SPS project G5825 – “Smart Patch for Life Support Systems  - SP4LIFE”. The project has started on 10th of March 2021 and it will end on 10th  of March 2024. Coordinator for FINKI is prof. Ana Madevska Bogdanova.

Web of the project: 

The first project Workshop will be organized 27-29 September, 2021 (ICT Innovations conference)

The objectives of the project are to:                         

  • develop wearable monitoring platforms with:
    • a.) sensitive respiration, heartbeat and auditory sensors based on graphene,
    • b.) ECG, SpO2  and body temperature sensor modules,
  • create a biocompatible wearable body-sensing interface hosting electronics, alarm, low-power transmission for light-weight, portable applications
  • create a software that will generate alert in real time, at the moment of critical physiological parameter changes or changes of the triage medical status according to START algorithm,
  • use Artificial Intelligence to create unsupervised software capable of real-time diagnostics and rapid countermeasures’ selection,
  • analyze existing (AS-IS) processes and consider their re-design (TO-BE processes) in organization of patient management on the site of accident with respect to wearable monitoring technology being developed,
  • create a network of young scientists training in soft and hard skills in the wearable electronics for biomedical applications.

Partners of the SP4LIFE project:

  • Institute of Measurement Science, Slovak Academy of Sciences (IMS), Slovakia (NPD)
  • Institute for Chemistry, Technology and Metallurgy, Centre for Microelectronic Technologies (ICTM), Serbia (PPD) 
  • Faculty of Computer Sciences and Engineering, Sts Cyril and Methodius (FCSE), N. Macedonia
  • Universitè libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Belgium
  • Faculty of Medicine in Bratislava, Comenius University in Bratislava (FM), Slovakia

The Kick-off meeting was held on-line due to the Covid pandemic, on 10.03.2021.
