On 4 and 5 October, proposal workshops will be organized at the EuroTech Alliance Brussels Office in the in the broader field of 'health and well-being'. Participating researchers will meet for exchanges 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 well-being 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.
The workshops are well-timed and build upon previous exchanges within the EuroTech Universities Alliance’s Focus Area Health & Bionengineering. The joint Brussels office facilitates the creation of competitive consortia for different funding instruments within Horizon 2020, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Since 2013, it 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.
