R&D Projects


AIMES are collaborating with a number of the leading technology institutions in both the public and private sector for MUSA, the Multi-cloud Secure Application. The main objective of MUSA is to support management of applications over diverse cloud resources, through a security framework which includes security-by-design mechanisms which allow application protection at runtime, and tools for the integrated security assurance in both the engineering and operation of multi-cloud applications. The MUSA framework leverages security-by-design, agile and DevOps approaches in multi-cloud applications, and enables the security-aware development and operation of multi-cloud applications.

SHiELD, or the European Security in Health Data Exchange, is a European funded Horizon 2020 project which facilitates the secure exchange of health data across borders. The project’s aim is to protect health data whilst patients travel abroad, assisting in a smooth data exchange across geographical boundaries in the event that it is necessary. By uniting health authorities from Lancashire, the Basque country, and Milan, SHiELD has demonstrated how data is to be safely transferred.

After being awarded funding from Innovate UK’s Protecting Data in Industry competition, AIMES partnered with Metrarc and The University of Southampton IT Innovation Centre to develop ASSURED: Automated Security for Supplier-User Reference models in E-health Data. This project will accelerate access to data for organizations that operate secure platforms in the health supply chain and it will enable institutions to automatically identify threats to their networks. Additionally, ASSURED will speed up the approval process to the N3 network by enabling continuous automated verification.

Connected Health Cities

Connected Health Cities
AIMES is working together with the Innovation Agency, The University of Liverpool and Lancaster University to deliver the Connected Health Cities project. The Connected Health Cities project utilises Northwest patient data to focus on three key areas; alcohol misuse, epilepsy and COPD. The collection of this data allows for medical specialists to access uptodate patient data, enabling them to review and develop the care that they offer. Eventually, this project aims to apply innovation and efficiency to healthcare in the North-West, through data-analysis and research.


PIBD-SET Quality

PIBD-SET Quality (Paediatric Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Network for Safety, Efficacy, Treatment and Quality improvement of care ) is a Horizon 2020 funded project, which started in January 2016. The overall goal of this proposal was to develop and validate an algorithm for PIBD, based on high or low risk predictors, which detect early complicated or relapsing disease. This will improve effectiveness, reducing treatment related risks and life-long complications due to uncontrolled disease progression.

AIMES provide a secure and compliant hosting environment, where cohort data is stored and documentation between the European Network can be shared. Project partners include NHS Glasgow, Queen Mary University London, Paris Descartes and Shaare Zedek Medical Center of Isreal.
