 ROSIA (Remote Rehabilitation Service for Isolated Areas) partners will launch an Open Market Consultation (OMC), on Monday 12th July. The OMC provides an opportunity for companies interested in contributing solutions to the project to present their ideas.

ROSIA is a European Commission Horizon 2020, Pre-commercial Procurement (PCP) project, consisting of 12 partners across 5 countries. ROSIA’s main objective is to address health care provision shortcomings and advance innovative digital solutions with development of devices and applications enhancing community care services for patients in their rehabilitation journey.

Four pre-OMC on-line events were held throughout June, with presentations given by ROSIA Partners from Ireland, Spain, Portugal and International. 114 companies attended these events which provided an opportunity for information sharing and engagement with a view to further participation in the project. The Irish OMC Event was particularly successful with engagement from national agencies Enterprise Ireland, the Health Innovation Hub and with 13 leading technology companies in Ireland presenting the state-of-the-art in eHealth particularly for patient services in rural and isolated areas, and rehabilitation services for people with Spinal Cord Injury and Acquired Brain Injury.

Pre-OMC attendees who have follow-up queries should direct requests back to the ROSIA Website (, or to Maria Bezunartea Alvarez ( or Sofia Moreno (

It has been used in Europe for a number of years now. In a PCP, the public administration is involved in the co-creation process, together with private bidders. The process will inspire a good number of new solutions and prototypes and the two most interesting will be implemented and tested in European regions participating in ROSIA (Portugal, Ireland and Spain).
