Contract Number 600933
Project Acronym SIFEM
Project Name " Semantic Infostructure interlinking an open source Finite Element tool
and libraries with a model repository for the multi-scale Modelling and 3d visualization of
the inner-ear "
Priority Objective ICT-2011.5.2 Virtual Physiological Human, b) Development of ICT tools,
services and infrastructure to obtain more elaborate and reusable multi-scale models
Start Date February 01, 2013
End Date January 31, 2016


Sifem Project


The SIFEM vision is to develop an Infostructure to semantically interlink a Finite Element (FE) tool and open-source supportive tools and libraries with the clinical knowledge, the available clinical and experimental data and a Model Repository in order to obtain more elaborate and reusable multi-scale models of the inner-ear. The long-term outcome of the SIFEM project is to enhance the accuracy of diagnosis and the efficiency of the treatment planning delivered to patients suffering from Sensorineural hearing loss resulting to more personalized healthcare.
