The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC) was founded in Milan in 1921 and includes 5 campuses (Milano, Brescia, Piacenza, Cremona, Roma), 14 faculties, 52 three-year major tracks, 42 graduate level degrees, 1 four-years degree, over 100 master tracks, 53 specializations, and 5 Postgraduate Schools. The extensive research program closely collaborates with 16 internal colleges, 62 departments, and 93 research centers. UCSC School of Medicine - a world-class training ground for future leaders in medical research and practice, public health, and biomedical science - is located at the Rome Campus and is linked to the teaching and healthcare provider Hospital Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS (FPG). UCSC has participated in numerous other large EU-funded projects, such as FP7, H2020, HE and DIGITAL, and many other projects.


UCSC boasts a robust portfolio in a variety of healthcare specialties, with a particular emphasis on emergency and trauma surgery alongside rigorous clinical trials on themes such as healthcare-related ICT and data protection, and ethics in research and study programs. As an expert in coordinating and overseeing EU-funded programs, UCSC demonstrates a sophisticated grasp of project management. Additionally, the institution actively contributes to scientific discourse through publications in specialized channels and peer-reviewed journals, thereby broadening the scope of medical knowledge. UCSC’s expertise extends to network building within the EU-funded projects and the Community of Users on secure, safe, and resilient societies. This role includes managing stakeholder platforms and rigorously assessing user requirements, positioning UCSC at the forefront of developing responsive healthcare solutions. Through these diverse initiatives, UCSC continues to drive innovation and set benchmarks in healthcare research and practice.


UCSC brings the Clinical Experience of an Emergency and Trauma Department Surgical Team. Operators are used to Advanced Technology for Trauma Care and can identify the possibility of new tool designs and functions that will be useful in future years. UCSC will do an organizational review of operational readiness for emergency medicine and healthcare services, review advances in urgent and emergency care services, give indications for AI-based healthcare surveillance tools for monitoring population health against emerging healthcare risks, and participate in the integration and demonstration of cross-border emergency medicine and regular healthcare services. UCSC will also take part in training, healthcare campaigns, dissemination, communication, and exploitation of the project.
