The ITFoM Consortium has been assembled with the aim of bringing together in a synergetic cluster the most competitive and respected European scientists leading cutting edge world class future and emerging technologies research in ICT infrastructures, high performance computing, data integration and modelling, the application of large scale analytical techniques (genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics, metabolomics, imaging, sensors, etc.) as well as many aspects of medicine (medical samples, public health/health economy/personalised medicine experts and general practitioners). The consortium unites groups currently carrying out large-scale data production in biology/medicine with hardware specialists, groups in informatics/machine learning/systems biology and medicine. It also links groups carrying on fundamental research in institutes and university research centres with SMEs and the major industrial corporations which currently dominate many of the relevant ICT and biomedical areas commercially as well as family medicine clinics.
