ERA PerMed, ERA-NET programme monitored by ICPerMed consortium, fosters research and innovation activities that build close linkages between clinical research, computer science/medical informatics and research on ethical, legal and social aspects in the field of Personalised Medicine (PM). The 30 funding organisations involved in the programme have agreed to launch the fourth Joint Transnational Call for collaborative innovative research projects in PM.
This call, named “MULTIDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH PROJECTS ON PERSONALISED MEDICINE – DEVELOPMENT OF CLINICAL SUPPORT TOOLS FOR PERSONALISED MEDICINE IMPLEMENTATION” is now open and all information available on ERA PerMed protal. Do not hesitate to check the aims, scope and conditions of this call on the website: http://www.erapermed.eu/joint-calls/joint-transnational-call-2021/
Most notably, research 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. The clinical relevance of the proposed PM approach needs to be convincingly demonstrated. Moreover, proposals must include research on ethical, legal and social aspects.
IC2PerMed project seeks to integrate Chinese agencies in the ICPerMed environments and notably within ERA PerMed programme. Follow up IC2PerMed Working Groups developments for more information on this initiative.
