First call

Dear Colleagues, 

We cordially invite you to participate in DigiHealthDay-2022, the International Symposium hosted by European Campus Rottal-Inn of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT-ECRI) on 11 November, 2022, in cooperation with its local and international partners.

DigiHealthDay explores modern Digital Health and its role in tackling global health problems from a uniquely international perspective. The previous edition of this signature event – DigiHealthDay-2021 – was attended by nearly 560 participants from 74 countries, and received testimonials; “It is fruitful with updated knowledge” “great discussion. great experts gets right to the point”, “Very educative”, among many.

Highlight themes this year include: AI Research, Ethics and Regulation; Pragmatic Research in Digital Health; as well as – traditionally – Digital Health Education.

The one-day-long action-packed symposium will include keynote talks by leading German and international experts, audience-centered panel discussions, oral and poster scientific presentations, student thesis and project presentations, and networking possibilities. Register now to receive timely updates about our distinguished speakers and fascinating program.

As in the previous years, a series of pre-conference DigiHealth Workshops by leading national and international experts, will be hosted in the Spring-Summer of 2022. Register now to benefit from that exclusive learning opportunity. 

This year the Symposium will be preceded by a special 5-day Workshop on Explainable and Ethical AI in Healthcare delivered jointly by leading experts from DIT-ECRIUniversity of Agder (Norway), University of Aalborg (Denmark), and Luleå Technical University (Sweden).
Highlight themes this year include: AI research, ethics and regulation; pragmatic research in digital health; as well as – traditionally – digital health education, as DIT-ECRI is home to an innovative, interdisciplinary and international study programme Master of Digital Health (MDH).

At the DigiHealthDay-2022, we will also share first-hand the result of the important ongoing research on Digital Health Education conducted by DIT-ECRI, and the highlights of our new online learning course "Global Digital Health".

Whether you are curious about the latest advances in Digital Health, looking for inspiration for your business, or simply keen on meeting like-minded professionals from around the world — DigiHealthDay @ DIT-ECRI is just for you! (See “Why Attend” below.)

Register now to receive subsequent news and information, and become part of a dynamic recurring platform of international knowledge exchange in Digital Health.


The main event on November 11 is planned as a hybrid event (onsite and live stream). You will be able to join the organisers and many of the speakers physically, on our campus, or tune in virtually from any part of the world.

We look forward to welcoming you (physically or virtually) to charming Pfarrkirchen, in the Heart of Europe!

host & venue

The faculty European Campus Rottal-Inn is a semi-autonomous branch of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (abbreviated to DIT. In German the DIT is titled THD – Technische Hochschule Deggendorf, a university of applied sciences in Bavaria). ECRI was established in 2015 as a cross-disciplinary educational institution preparing multilingual, global graduates for international careers in applied healthcare and technical sciences. ECRI offers two full-time study programs in the field of Healthcare Information and Communication Technologies: Bachelor of Health Informatics, and Master of Medical Informatics, both taught in English, targeting not only local but primarily international students. 

ECRI is located in the district centre Pfarrkirchen, in the region of Lower Bavaria (South-East of Germany). It is a charming touristic town, nestled among rolling, picturesque hills, close to the Austrian border and only one hour’s drive away from Deggendorf. Attractive cities nearby are Salzburg, Regensburg and Passau, and Munich is just a 90-minute drive away. The proximity to Austria and the Czech Republic puts the district in the heart of Europe. Pfarrkirchen has excellent school and education facilities, and offers many leisure activities. In the recent years Pfarrkirchen has become culturally renowned in the area due to its exceptional art exhibitions, museum nights and numerous festivals and events throughout the year. In the summer, the old town festival tempts thousands of visitors with its multicultural culinary and musical events.

The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) strives for academic excellence and ranks among the best universities of applied sciences in Germany. Founded in 1994, it is a young, modern and excellently equipped university offering relevant and practical courses set in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. DIT supports its students with many facilities, such as student clubs, a sports programme, an international office, career services and child care centre. It is the perfect environment for students to shape their futures and move forward into academic success.

Around 8,000 students study in a range of bachelor and master level courses held in English or German (of which 29% are international students from 100+ countries). More than 1,000 students are at ECRI, in exclusively English study courses. DIT is committed to producing global graduates with international degrees: 165 partner universities around the world provide students with many opportunities to gain experience and earn credits towards their degree through foreign exchange semesters, internships and double-degree studies abroad. Additionally, great value is placed on German language training, which is tremendously beneficial for international students, helping them integrate easily into the Bavarian lifestyle.

The university focuses in three areas: firstly, full-time education; secondly, applied research & development; and thirdly, further education. Full-time education concentrates on the bachelor and master courses, whilst in applied research & development a vast range of research topics lead to practical scientific solutions that are used to develop new, marketable products, processes and services. In fact, many doctoral students are engaged in cooperative PhD programmes in this important field. Finally, further education is organised by the Deggendorf Institute for Further Education; its courses are geared towards students who work full-time whilst pursuing further education to advance their careers.
