ERA PerMed – Joint Transnational Call 2021

Published 4 February 2021

Technology platform Imaging & Tracing; Biomarkers
(Pre-proposal deadline: 4 March 2021) 

The overarching goal of ERA PerMed is to improve disease prevention and disease management, based on broader and more efficiently characterised and defined patient stratification, diagnostics and tailored treatment/prevention protocols for both patients and individuals at risk of disease. Early involvement of regulatory authorities and close interaction with the different key contributors along the value chain should be included right from the project development phase to bridge the gap between first discoveries or inventions to market access. 

Call topicresearch proposals submitted under this call are expected to demonstrate the applicability of project outcomes to clinical practice and to combine clinical research with data technologies. This could be the development and application of clinical decision support tools by using artificial intelligence (AI) systems approaches, including machine learning technologies. 

In order to ensure the development of specific PM approaches the proposals have to take into account the major aspects for their successful implementation in the health systems:  

(1) “Translating Basic to Clinical Research and Beyond”,  

(2) “Data and Information and Communication Technology (ICT)” and  

(3) “Research towards Responsible Implementation in Healthcare”.
