The rapid development of information and communication technologies has enabled the creation of networks for e-learning and telemedicine. The EMISPHER network has been dedicated to bridge the digital divide in the Euro-Mediterranean healthcare area. In the project an integrated Internet-Satellite platform has been set up on which a Virtual Medical University has been realized, thus establishing a permanent medical and scientific link, Real-Time Telemedicine applications for remote expertise and second opinion, as well as the fostering of cross-Mediterranean cooperation at expert level. Using the real-time communication capabilities of EMISPHER for tele-education it will be possible to learn from live participation in the “point of action” with the possibility of interaction.
