EuroTech H2020 Proposal Workshop ‘Health and Wellbeing’

The joint Brussels office of the EuroTech Universities Alliance facilitates the establishment of competitive consortia for different funding instruments within the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (H2020).
The 04 and 05 October a proposal workshop in the area of ‘health and well-being’ will be organized at the EuroTech Alliance Brussels Office. Participating researchers will exchange on current and future activities, on-going projects and trends in the area of health.

The Horizon 2020 work programme for health, demographic change and well-being aims at reconciling better health and healthy ageing with the need to develop sustainable health and care systems and growth opportunities for the health and care related industries. It also focuses on digital transformation in health and care with the aim of supporting the management of health and wellbeing while empowering the participation of citizens and facilitating the transformation of health and care services to more digitised, person-centred and community-based care models, thereby enabling better access to healthcare and the sustainability of health and care systems.

This workshop is is well-timed and builds upon previous exchanges within the EuroTech Universities Alliance’s focus area Health & Bionengineering. Since 2013, the EuroTech Universities Brussels Office has organized several workshops and events in the field of health, which addressed various aspects, such as e.g. health gaming, active and healthy ageing or personalised medicine.
