Rationale Behind Our Alliance

This Alliance has brought together leading institutions in the field to pool their knowledge and know-how with the aim of developing and making available to European high education institutions a set of innovative tools to improve the quality of medical training offered, with the consequent improvement of the care service provided to future patients. The objective of this Alliance is the modernization of the European training system at medical and surgical training, making available to mentors, students and residents alike a set of innovative pedagogical and training tools. This will contribute to the EU's objective of fostering a shared economic vision to create a strong, competitive and innovative Europe.

Nine partners across six European countries will work together to make MIREIA Project happen.

This Alliance will enable the creation of a European knowledge-sharing framework for the training and education of future medical professionals, thus promoting the efficient use of resources. Before the release of the project results, in order to meet the European training needs in the field of medicine and surgery, cooperation at European level is necessary so that all the tools proposed in this project can be validated by potential users (medical students and residents) of different educational institutions in their member countries.

Consortium Partners


With more than 20 years of experience in surgical training and research, the CCMIJU will play an important role on all educational aspects of the project. CCMIJU will be responsible of the management of the project (WP1), they will coordinate the project's validation (WP7), and actively participate in the implementation of the model and content generation tools (WP4 and WP5) and creation of the learning content (WP6).
