Translational research requires boundary crossing, breaking down disciplinary silos and collaborating with others across research areas and professions to collectively advance research and innovation for the benefit of patients. By engaging with multiple sectors and a wide range of stakeholders to collectively address bottlenecks currently hampering translational medicine, EATRIS will foster the deployment of European and national innovation ecosystems, capable to solve systemic challenges in translational research and support the exploitation of research results beyond the lab. In addition, by further strengthening its role as a bridge between academia and industry, EATRIS will continue to help generate innovative translational approaches and scientific concepts, enhance health innovation and reduce barriers to public-private collaboration. Supporting the digital transformation of translational medicine by developing Europe’s technological strengths in machine learning, AI, and data science will also enhance the competitiveness of European research and innovation. 

Here are some examples of our work in this area:
