Digital Health in the Circular Economy (DiCE) (2022-2026) (DICE)


DICE aims to develop and demonstrate novel, circular and environmentally sound solutions to design, collect, directly reuse,refurbish, remanufacture and recycle digital health devices (ePaper label, smart wearable sensor, smart pill box, endo-cutter), whichwill contribute to enabling a circular transition. Solutions will be implemented, tested and demonstrated in five healthcareecosystems reflecting the geographical spread within Europe through community-engaged pilots in Norway, Belgium, Slovenia,Spain and Germany. DICE will contribute to mitigating the globally expanding health waste problem covering three material streams-electronics, plastics, metal- and alleviate shortage of critical and valuable raw materials, while protecting the health and safety ofthose involved in realising the circular economy. Exploitation of key outputs will be ensured by all partners throughout and after theproject and will be further extended to adjacent sectors through existing networks and platforms within which the partners arerepresented.
