MEDITWIN Unites French Science and Technology Excellence Around Virtual Twins for the Future of Medical Care


VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The MEDITWIN consortium was announced on December 11, 2023, in the presence of French President Emmanuel Macron. More details were presented at the PariSanté Campus on December 14 in the presence of French Minister Delegate for Industry Roland Lescure. The consortium is made up of seven University Hospital Institutes (IHUs), Nantes University Hospital (CHU), Inria, startups and Dassault Systèmes. MEDITWIN will offer virtual twins for medical practice, helping to improve the quality of care for safer, more accessible healthcare for all.

“The MEDITWIN consortium is in line with PRISM’s vision of developing cancer avatars to model biology at the patient level and tailor personalized therapies. PRISM will also benefit from the expertise of the other IHUs, and will be working closely with them to develop interdisciplinary projects.”

The MEDITWIN project will offer personalized virtual twins of organs, metabolism and cancer, for better diagnosis and treatment. In particular, MEDITWIN will enable doctors to simulate future scenarios for a patient.

Seven new medical practices will be developed from the virtual twins, in neurology, cardiology and oncology. This will result in seven “virtual healthcare products” that will be deployed on a sovereign industrial cloud platform.

The MEDITWIN project leverages the expertise of world-class partners in each of the fields covered, around the 14 founding members of this consortium: Dassault Systèmes, as the industrial leader of the consortium; seven University Hospital Institutes at the highest level of medical and scientific excellence; Nantes University Hospital via l’institut du thorax; startups inHEART, Codoc, Qairnel and Neurometers; and Inria through 11 project teams involved in this project.

Virtual twins have become an indispensable asset in the aeronautics and mobility industries, where virtualization has enabled considerable progress in terms of safety, quality, ecological footprint and cost-effectiveness. MEDITWIN builds on the experience accumulated by the partners over many years in the field of virtual twins for healthcare, such as the Living Heart initiative by Dassault Systèmes (link), the Living Brain (link), as well as the activities of the PEPR digital health program co-directed by Inria and INSERM, for example.

MEDITWIN will enable the industrialization, clinical validation and standardization of these innovations, so that these technologies can be deployed in a standardized way and benefit as many people as possible. The best standards of care will be incorporated into virtualized experiences made accessible worldwide, setting a new benchmark for quality in healthcare and providing a decisive learning ground for progress in medical science.

The benefits of virtual twins will be assessed for medical teams, patients, and the healthcare system, notably in terms of improving the efficiency of care, quality of multidisciplinary decision-making, and effectiveness and safety of medical practices and interventions.

In practice, the MEDITWIN initiative will be developed over five years, from 2024 to 2029. The partners’ investment in this project will be financially supported by the French government as part of the “France 2030” plan.
