08 February 2016 / Categories: News CM2000 & ENU shortlisted for Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards CM2000 are delighted that their falls prediction research project with Edinburgh Napier University (ENU) has been shortlisted in the Innovation of the Year category at the inaugural Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards. The awards celebrate partnerships between businesses and universities which deliver benefits to Scotland. Brian Brown, CM2000’s Director for Scotland has been at the forefront of the project. He says: “There is an enormous amount of health and social care data which is currently under-utilised. Our project holds the key to understanding at what point intervention is required. We are thrilled that this ground-breaking work being undertaken by ENU, CM2000 and a number of Scottish Councils has been shortlisted for this prestigious award.” Explaining the background to the project, Adrian Smales, a Research Fellow at ENU, said: “We have a long-term vision of using data to detect the early signs of illness, and apply new methods that should lead to improved care and better outcomes for all.” Award organisers, Interface, commented “We are absolutely delighted with the number and calibre of entries. These partnerships demonstrate the variety of ways in which business and academia are working together to develop products, test ideas and deliver new processes and services which can really make a difference to people’s lives and society.” CM2000 and ENU will have to wait until 25th February to find out which of the four finalists will receive the Innovation of the Year award.
