The second plenary meeting of the DIOPTRA consortium took place on October 2nd and 3rd in Nicosia, Cyprus, hosted by the Institute of Communication & Computer Systems (ICCS). This important meeting charted the course for the upcoming phases of our project that aims to revolutionise colorectal cancer (CRC) screening and diagnostics through advanced technology.

The consortium, uniting experts across various domains, engaged in a comprehensive discourse covering multiple Work Packages (WPs) and set in motion actions toward achieving the project’s milestones. For the DIOPTRA prospective study, the protocols are in place with ethics approvals underway. Emphasis on prospective recruitment and study registration (ISRCTN) has been prioritized. In addition, access to technical infrastructure has been established, with development of dashboards, back-end systems, and mobile app mock-ups advancing. At the same time, the consortium reaffirmed its commitment to EU Cluster collaboration, highlighting a roadmap for deliverables and cluster work planning.

The meeting culminated in detailed action plans across all WPs.

The DIOPTRA project, funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is positioned to make significant strides in the early detection and treatment of colorectal cancer. The consortium thanks all partners for their continued efforts and is confident in the project’s trajectory following the productive outcomes of plenary meeting.
