DigiHealthDay-2021 awarded winners of Student R&D Project Contest
The DigiHealthDay (DHD) at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) is not only a series of events for Digital Health experts and students, it also provides a platform for aspiring researchers in the field. This is why the DHD also held a “Students Session” with an Student R&D Project Contest during the main event last November. On 9 March, the two winners of the contest received their certificates and prices, after the ceremony had previously been postponed due to Covid-19.
The two winners where invited to join Prof. Dr. Georgi Chaltikyan, Organising Committee Chair of DHD, and Prof. Dr. Horst Kunhardt, Scientific Committee Chair of DHD for a small ceremony at the ECRI. The first prize of € 200 was awarded to Hamza Maatouk for his presentation titled: “Digital Health Aging Population Telemedicine Education Mobile Technology Telemedicine for old people”. The second prize of € 150 went to Elegbede Adeniyi who held a presentation on “Usage and Effectiveness of Digital Health Technology (DHT) as a Tool for the Management of Mental Health in South-West Nigeria during COVID-19 Pandemic”.
For the Student R&D Project Contest students who where enrolled in Bachelor's and Master's programmes in the domain of Digital Health, and in any stage of pursuing their thesis research were invited to submit their abstracts. Six of the projects were then selected for oral presentation at the "Student Session" during the DigiHealthDay 2021 symposium on 12 November 2021. Each presenter got 15 minutes, including Q&A.
