R&D Ecosystem for Personalising Health Industry – Regions4PerMed Workshop

Date & Time 28 April 2021 at 12:45 CEST
Address Virtual

It is well recognised that a thriving R&D ecosystem is a facilitator and an important resource for innovation in almost any scientific field. The concept of R&D innovation ecosystem implies that academic R&D-related innovation potential feeds into industry and vice versa. Relations are manifold, with proximity and closer social contacts between actors and supporting structures ´such as tech transfer and cluster organisations serving as catalysers. These ecosystems may enhance industry development by providing essential R&D infrastructures for personalised medicine and health, as much as by generating qualified human resources. A well-functioning regional R&D ecosystem may offer high-tech services on one hand, and on the other guidance by generating role models for entrepreneurship and the translation of scientific breakthroughs into tangible innovative products.

The project Regions4PerMed contributes to the achievement of the objectives of the European strategy launched in 2011 with the European Council Conclusion: Towards modern, responsive and sustainable health systems (2011/C 202/04) on and modernisation of the European Healthcare system.
