Call for proposals HEALTH-2010-two-stage FP7-HEALTH-2010-two-stage Closed!


In the scope of the overall objectives of Theme 1 Health of the Specific Programme Cooperation, the present Call will address the following objectives:

Biotechnology, generic tools and medical technologies for human health

This activity aims at developing and validating the necessary tools and technologies that will  make possible the production of new knowledge and its translation into practical applications  in the area of health and medicine.

Translating research for human health

This activity aims at increasing knowledge of biological processes and mechanisms involved  in normal health and in specific disease situations, to transpose this knowledge into clinical  applications including disease control and treatment, and to ensure that clinical (including  epidemiological) data guide further research.

Optimising the delivery of healthcare to european citizens
