Research and Innovation in Health, Breda, 21 June 2018

In collaboration with the 'i-4-1 health' project

The purpose of this workshop was to foster knowledge and experience exchange on the challenges facing research and innovation (R&I) in health and the life sciences and the role European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI Funds) can play in managing these challenges. The following issues were discussed:

  • Research and innovation in health – assessing needs and priorities for investments in R&I;
  • The role of the ESI Funds in supporting these needs and priorities;
  • Research and innovation in health – fostering synergies between different fund sources.

The workshop was carried out in collaboration with the beneficiaries of the project i-4-1-health and will feature this project supported by the European Regional Development Fund.

This workshop is part of a series of events organised by the ‘ESI Funds for Health’ project funded by the Health Programme of the EU (Jan 2017- Dec 2018) with the aim to:

  • Gather knowledge on health investments by the ESI Funds across the EU;
  • Build knowledge and capacities to support the implementation of the ESI Funds for health.
