1 Introduction to EU Funding Instruments for Research and Development in E-Health Dr. Agnes Szmolenszky Hungarian Science and Technology Foundation (TETALAP)
2 FP7 at a Glance 2007-2013 Total budget of over € 50 Billion Supports research in selected priority areasObjectivesto strengthen the scientific and technological base of European industryto encourage international competitiveness, while promoting research that supports EU policies.
3 Budget Evolution of FPs The programme has a total budget of over€ 50 billion. This represents a substantial increase compared withthe previous Framework Programme FP6 (41% at 2004 prices, 63% atcurrent prices), a reflection of the high priority of research in Europe.Indeed, FP7 is a key tool to respond to Europe's needs in terms ofjobs and competitiveness, and to maintain leadership in the globalknowledge economy.Annual spending in 2013 to be 75% higher than 2006
4 Structure of FP7 + Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier ResearchPeople – Human PotentialCapacities – Research Capacity+Cooperation covers collaborative research covering 10 thematic areas.Ideas provide funding opportunities to investigator-driver “frontier research”, including basic research. Ideas is implemented through the European Research Council.People includes opportunities for initial training, life-long training, industry-academia partnerships and opportunities for international researchers through its “international dimension”Capacities covers topics regarding the strengthening of infrastructures, the research for the benefit of SMEs, the development of regions of knowledge, as well as topics on science in society and the development of research policies. Capacities also includes an element on international cooperation.Joint Research Centre (non-nuclear)Joint Research Centre (nuclear)Euratom
5 Cooperation – Collaborative research Core of FP7Promotes collaborative research in Europe and beyondAims to gain leadership in key scientific and technological areasSupports cooperation between universities, industry, research centres and public authorities10 thematic prioritiesCore of FP7 – represents 2/3 of the overall FP7 budget
6 FP7 Cooperation – 10 Themes HealthFood, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnologyInformation & communication technologiesNanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologiesEnergyEnvironment (including climate change)Transport (including aeronautics)Socio-economic sciences and humanitiesSpaceSecurity
7 FP7 Cooperation – Health pillar 1:Biotechnology,generic tools & technologiesfor healthpillar 2:Translatingresearch forhuman healthpillar 3:Optimisingthe deliveryof health careActivity (pillar) 4: Other actions across the themecross-cutting issues: child health, the health of ageing population gender-related health issues
8 FP7 Cooperation – ICT eHealth research is being tackled under “Challenge 5 – Sustainable and Personalised Healthcare”Aim: creation of an “intelligent environment” in which:the health status of any given individual can be monitored and managed continuouslyhealth professionals are assisted in addressing major health problems
9 FP7 Cooperation – ICT Work in Challenge 5 focuses on 3 main areas: 1. Personal Health Systems (PHS): key technologies, such as biosensors and secure communications, helping monitoring and management of health statusEU research funding targets:research into monitoring systems for patients with chronic diseasessystems and tools which can be used for diagnostic purposes
10 FP7 ICT Projects I. Some examples: CD-Medics "Coeliac disease - management, monitoring and diagnosis using biosensors and an integrated chip system"Chronious "An open, ubiquitous and adaptive chronic disease management platform for COPD and renal insufficiency"DIAdvisor "Personal Glucose Predictive Diabetes Advisor"Metabo "Controlling Chronic Diseases related to Metabolic Disorders„More to be found at:
11 FP7 Cooperation – ICT2.Patient Safety (PS): software tools to help decision making with a potential effect on patient safetyFP7supports projects which seek to develop advanced ICT applications to improve risk assessment and patient safety.Specific intervention areas may inlcude:safety of surgical interventionsimproving the interaction between clinical care and clinical researchimprovement of global health security
12 FP7 ICT Projects II. Some examples: Avert-It "Advanced Arterial Hypotension Adverse Event prediction through a Novel Bayesian Neural Network" -Comoestas "Electronic Interactive Patient Record"DebugIt "Detecting and Eliminating Bacteria UsinG Information Technology"EU-ADR (former Alert) "Early detection of adverse drug events by integrative mining of clinical records and biomedical knowledge"Gap "Guard, Anticipation and Prediction. A new approach to Health Risk Prediction"More to be found at:
13 FP7 Cooperation – ICT3. Virtual Physiological Human (VPH): networking multidisciplinary researchers in the fields of bio-informatics, genomics, and neuro-informatics to help create a new generation of eHealth systems to assist the ‘individualisation’ of disease prevention, diagnoses and treatment.EU research funding targets:Development of tools to model and predict the effects of different treatment options in individual patients.
14 FP7 Cooperation – ICT Specific intervention areas may inlcude: simulation for surgical training, planning and interventionprediction or early diagnosis of disease by integrating patient history with biomedical imaging (from X-rays, scans and internal camera examination of the patient as well as microscopic examination of cells removed from the body)simulation environments for assessing the efficacy and safety of specific drugs.
15 FP7 ICT Projects III. Some examples: Action-Grid - International cooperative action on grid computing and biomedical informatics between the European Union, Latin America, the Western Balkans and North AfricaARTreat - Multi-level patient-specific artery and atherogenesis model for outcome prediction, decision support treatment, and virtual hand-on trainingContraCancrum - Clinically Oriented Translational Cancer Multilevel ModellingeuHeart - Personalised and intergrated cardiac care: Patient-specific Cardiovascular Modelling and Simulation for In Silico Disease Understanding and Management and for Medical Device Evaluation and OptimizationMore to be found at:
16 FP7 - Ideas Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier ResearchPeople – Human PotentialCapacities – Research Capacity
17 FP7 - Ideas Supports “frontier research” All areas of science and technology – “bottom-up” approachSelection based on scientific excellence onlyIndividual research teams (or collaboration)Implemented via the European Research Council (ERC)Bottom-up – no pre-defined themes
18 FP7 - People Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier ResearchPeople – Human PotentialCapacities – Research Capacity
19 FP7 - PeopleProvides support for researcher mobility and career developmentFor both researchers inside and outside the EUObjective – to make Europe more attractive to the best researchersImplemented via a set of Actions
20 FP7 - Capacities Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier ResearchPeople – Human PotentialCapacities – Research Capacity
21 FP7- CapacitiesAims to strengthen Europe’s research capacities through:Research InfrastructuresResearch for the benefit of SMEsRegions of KnowledgeResearch PotentialScience in SocietySpecific Activities for International Cooperation
22 Competitivesness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) Aims:Foster the competitiveness of enterprises (especially SMEs)Promote innovation, including eco-innovationAccelerate the development of a competitive Information SocietyPromote energy efficiency and new/renewable energy sources (including transport)Programmes:Entrepreneurship and Innovation ProgrammeICT Policy Support ProgrammeIntelligent Energy Europe Programme
23 CIP ICT Policy Support Programme Aim:supporting member states and stakeholders to ensure EU-wide interoperable health services.Specific objectives for e-health:Enlargement of the pilot "epSOS" on eHealth Interoperability for patient's summariesePrescription" and "Scaling up of eHealth services and supporting the EU eHealth governance initiative
24 CIP ICT Policy Support Programme Some examples:European Patients Smart Open Services project (epSOS): a European large scale pilot aiming at developing, testing and validating specifications for interoperability of patients summaries and ePrescriptions. It involves 27 beneficiaries out of twelve EU-member states, including ministries of health, national competence centres and industry.ICT PSP open until 1 June 2010.
