Redburn Solutions are delighted to announce their participation as the SME Technology provider in the €3m European project OptiBirth.
A team of researchers, led by Professor of Nursing and Midwifery Cecily Begley at Trinity College Dublin School of Nursing and Midwifery, has been awarded €3million in European Commission funding for a research project that addresses the widespread concern over rising Caesarean section rates throughout Europe.
The OptiBIRTH team comprises 12 partner institutions from eight countries (Ireland, Germany, UK, Belgium, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland and Norway), and includes service users, midwives, obstetricians, neonatologists, epidemiologists, sociologists, psychologists, bioethicists, health economists and a high-tech SME.
The study examines the rising rates of Caesarean section throughout Europe, focusing in particular on routine Caesarean section following a previous Caesarean birth, despite calls for increased natural births after Caesareans.
Redburn, in association with it’s Sardinian partner Entando, will provide technological innovation, dissemination, and commercialisation of the study.
