Data - 11/12/2019

Date and location

Wednesday 11 December, 14:00-17:00, at Neth-ER, Aarlenstraat 22 Brussels.




The aim of the workshop is to check in on the 8 health partnerships proposed in Horizon Europe together with Europe’s major health research funders. As the Commission is updating its orientations on the strategic plan, we have invited DG RTD to present the current ideas on the proposed

European Partnerships in the area of human health (see the list in annex 7 of the orientations). Henriette van Eijl, Head of Unit for Economic & Social Transitions (RTD.E.6), and Giorgio Clarotti (same unit) will give an update on the health partnerships and answer questions regarding the potential participation of health research funders in the partnerships.
