The calls of the VRT Foundation (Valorization of Trentino Research Foundation) were launched on March 19, 2020 with the aim of countering the #Covid19 pandemic by supporting social impacts-oriented research. With the title “The impact of research from PNRR to people“, the public meeting was held yesterday, November 30, 2021, at the headquarters of the CARITRO Foundation in Trento, which was also attended remotely by Maria Cristina Messa, minister of the university and research.

At the end of the round table, some good practices selected from 52 projects funded were awarded, taking into account their relevance, originality and ability to bring concrete benefits to a large portion of residents, in a short time.

For TrentinoSalute4.0, the award for the project on cardiology televisiting went to:

Stefano Forti and Giulia Malfatti, with the televisiting project, which allowed the large-scale implementation of a more regular remote monitoring of patients. One of the areas explored is cardiology (through the TreC digital health system), in which the concept of “on demand clinic” has been applied in which human contact was mediated by remote eye contact and chat that have been instrumental in maintaining a high standard of care and relationship during the pandemic and lay the groundwork for further applications”.
