SAPHIRe – Securing the adoption of personalised health in regions – is a three year project (2019-2021) funded by the European Commission (DG Research and Innovation) under the Horizon 2020 programme and is managed by a consortium consisting of the department of Economy, Science and Innovation of the Flemish Government, the Public Health Agency of Northern Ireland and EIT. The aim of the project is to map personalised medicine and health policies in European regions and to establish and support networking between interested regions in order to facilitate interregional collaboration and identify opportunities for funding of joint projects.
Five health industry associations are currently in discussions towards the creation of a Public-Private Partnership under Horizon Europe, the next EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation. As part of the creation of the partnership, all relevant stakeholders and the public are invited to contribute to the development of the Strategic Research Agenda.
The Commission invites anyone with an interest in future research and innovation partnerships to participate in the survey, which will close on 6 November 2019.
