8-year experience in managing large cooperative EU-funded research projects, focusing on the development of innovative technologies in the eHealth field. I have gained experience in coordinating big international consortia, solving conflicts, keeping projects on-track, taking care of financial and administrative issues, and providing business development support – also using the lean methodology - for the implemented technological solutions. Most recently, I have focused on blockchain and smart-contract- based solutions in a variety of field, understanding the potential impact of the blockchain technology, designing the most fitting strategies for proper implementation in various real-world use case scenarios, and assessing the relevant business models, while also analysing the business, organisational, and regulatory challenges to be addressed for an effective adoption of this new technology.
I'm currently involved in the coordination of the EU-funded project MyHealthMyData, which implement a blockchain-based biomedical information network centred on the connection between healthcare providers, biomedical industries and individuals, encouraging a more robust data flow, starting from hospitals making anonymised data available for research and development, while prompting citizens to regain control over their health data, also making it possible for them to take part to the care process and contribute to it with patient-generated data (MIoT). MHMD is intended to become a multi-sided health data marketplace, based on new mechanisms of trust and direct, value-based relationships between EU citizens, hospitals, research centres and businesses. With my company, Lynkeus, we also recently founded the Working Group about Blockchain Applications in Healthwithin the Research Data Alliance. I’ve also recently launched the first chapter of the Government Blockchain Association in Italy, dealing with blockchain solutions in the public domain, for addressing complex socio-economic challenges.
