FET FLAGSHIP Proposal on Personalized Health Care Initiative
Published on: February 6, 2018
Category: Group Activities

The proposal is coordinated by the University of Minho, and is supported by a Steering Committee of 15 members, including Maastricht University, representing academia and industry leaders from across Europe. It is also supported by a large number of organisations, including over 140 academia and health institutes, 40 research institutes, 95 industry and associations and 25 regional and national authorities.

Through a multi-actor and multi-disciplinary approach, the initiative will focus on the development of targeted and specific therapies for diseases that have an impact on society and the patient, the development of new technologies, and preventive and predictive tools.

FET Flagships are one of the most prestigious, highly-funded, strongest and game-changing instruments of EU research. They will involve a total budget of about €1 billion including EU and public and private funding.
