The goal is to train 200 to 400 computer science students per year in 10 projects in order to get more of them employed in the health sector:

  • By encouraging the training of specialists with a true dual culture of IT and healthcare by creating complete IT/eHealth courses within masters or engineering curricula
  • By introducing a module to raise awareness of eHealth issues in as many master's degrees and engineering courses as possible.

As a way to serve the digital and ecological transitions, the training of young people and employees allows us to strengthen the human capital that is essential to the functioning of our companies and, beyond that, to society as a whole. It is also the best way to offer sustainable jobs at all skill levels throughout the country.

This is also one of the major conditions for the success of the France 2030 plan: supporting the emergence of talent and accelerating the adaptation of training to the skill needs of emerging sectors and professions of the future. €2.5 billion from the France 2030 plan will be spent on human capital to achieve this ambition.

The "Skills and Professions of the Future" call for expressions of interest (the “CMA AMI”) is part of this framework and aims to meet the needs of companies in terms of training and new skills for the professions of the future. Adapting and reinforcing the training system for jobs facing labor shortages could also strengthen our ability to achieve the France 2030 objectives.


eHealth training for IT specialists is surprisingly scarce in France, whether at the university or engineering school level.

This action must be carried out by a higher education institution supported (or not) by a consortium that may include higher education institutions, hospitals and care structures, and digital training actors
