The last two years have been one of the most difficult and challenging for healthcare professionals across Europe. The I-BOX project has been able to respond to the needs of nursing students and teachers with diligence. The strong motivation and involvement of the consortium members has made it possible for this innovative Erasmus+ project which has a strong link with the healthcare field. This cooperation has been fully advantageous of the multiplier capabilities offered by the digitalisation context. In one hand, the development of the I-BOX platform with 90 videos, 60 podcasts and 60 infographics on nursing procedures added as digital learning into the training of nurses in European universities. On the other hand, the digital resources have been of huge interest to some of the health centers in different events organized during the project. The work done has finally brought great results, such as the open access I-BOX platform: http://i-boxplatform.com/
