Environment, health and handicap

Environment, health and handicapDigital technology is shaking up the field of health. Thanks to big data management, medicine is becoming more personalised, predictive and preventative. The notion of 'patient' will become obsolete; tomorrow's medicine will take action even before a person falls ill. At the same time, biotechnologies have become a reality; new functional foods, drugs and treatments are being developed and are already used to treat many conditions. They also help bring health and quality along the entire food chain, even including waste treatment.

This ecosystem was created as part of the Université Bretagne Sud's (UBS) ongoing Bio-Alternative State-Region Planning Contract and the Lorient metropolitan area's Handicap Innovation Territory project. This innovation ecosystem aims to: coordinate scientific and pedagogical actions; enhance nationwide visibility of the University's activities in the field of health; and forge more bonds with companies across the territory.
