Event description

Description

Research and innovation is crucial to reduce the increasing burden of major chronic diseases in European societies. Although the last decades have seen important advances in medical research and innovation, there are still significant gaps in the understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.

The EU plays an important role in supporting medical research and innovation. Not only does it provide significant research funding, but also contributes to strengthening collaboration between researchers, universities and research centres across Europe, as well as between academy and industry. It also supports the training of researchers, fosters excellence in research, and actively promotes innovation, among other contributions.

The ongoing mid-term evaluation of Horizon 2020, and the initial steps in the development of the next Research Framework Programme (2021-2027) represent a good opportunity to reflect on the EU (and Member States) support to medical research and innovation as well as to discuss potential changes to implement in future EU research policy developments.

The Conference “The future of health research and innovation after Horizon 2020. Do we need a novel approach?” aims to contribute to this debate.

The event will bring together EU and national policy makers, representatives of scientific societies, patients’ organisations and health professional associations, as well as representatives of industry, health care providers and other stakeholders.

The aim of the conference is to identify key challenges in medical research in Europe as well as to develop policy recommendations to EU and national decision makers, in particular on 4 main issues:

  • The development of the next research framework programme

  • The implementation of Public-Private Partnerships in health research and innovation

  • The transfer of research findings and innovations into clinical practice

  • The engagement of patients in research and innovation
