Introduction to EU Funding Instruments for Research and Development in E-Health Dr. Agnes Szmolenszky Hungarian Science and Technology Foundation (TETALAP)
FP7 at a Glance Total budget of over € 50 Billion Supports research in selected priority areas Objectives –to strengthen the scientific and technological base of European industry –to encourage international competitiveness, while promoting research that supports EU policies.
Structure of FP7 Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier Research People – Human Potential Capacities – Research Capacity + Joint Research Centre (non-nuclear) Joint Research Centre (nuclear) Euratom
Core of FP7 Promotes collaborative research in Europe and beyond Aims to gain leadership in key scientific and technological areas Supports cooperation between universities, industry, research centres and public authorities 10 thematic priorities Cooperation – Collaborative research
FP7 Cooperation – 10 Themes Health Food, agriculture and fisheries, and biotechnology Information & communication technologies Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies Energy Environment (including climate change) Transport (including aeronautics) Socio-economic sciences and humanities Space Security
FP7 Cooperation – Health pillar 1: Biotechnology, generic tools & technologies for health pillar 2: Translating research for human health pillar 3: Optimising the delivery of health care Activity (pillar) 4: Other actions across the theme cross-cutting issues: child health, the health of ageing population gender-related health issues
FP7 Cooperation – ICT eHealth research is being tackled under “Challenge 5 – Sustainable and Personalised Healthcare”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 continuously health professionals are assisted in addressing major health problems
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 statusPersonal Health Systems EU research funding targets: research into monitoring systems for patients with chronic diseases systems and tools which can be used for diagnostic purposes
FP7 ICT Projects I. Some examples: CD-Medics "Coeliac disease - management, monitoring and diagnosis using biosensors and an integrated chip system"CD-Medics Chronious "An open, ubiquitous and adaptive chronic disease management platform for COPD and renal insufficiency"Chronious DIAdvisor "Personal Glucose Predictive Diabetes Advisor"DIAdvisor Metabo "Controlling Chronic Diseases related to Metabolic Disorders„Metabo More to be found at: /research/fp7phs/index_en.htm
FP7 Cooperation – ICT 2.Patient Safety (PS): software tools to help decision making with a potential effect on patient safetyPatient Safety FP7supports projects which seek to develop advanced ICT applications to improve risk assessment and patient safety. Specific intervention areas may inlcude: safety of surgical interventions improving the interaction between clinical care and clinical research improvement of global health security
FP7 ICT Projects II. Some examples: Avert-It "Advanced Arterial Hypotension Adverse Event prediction through a Novel Bayesian Neural Network" -Avert-It Comoestas "Electronic Interactive Patient Record"Comoestas DebugIt "Detecting and Eliminating Bacteria UsinG Information Technology"DebugIt EU-ADR (former Alert) "Early detection of adverse drug events by integrative mining of clinical records and biomedical knowledge"EU-ADR Gap "Guard, Anticipation and Prediction. A new approach to Health Risk Prediction"Gap More to be found at: dex_en.htm
FP7 Cooperation – ICT 3. 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.Virtual Physiological Human EU research funding targets: Development of tools to model and predict the effects of different treatment options in individual patients.
FP7 Cooperation – ICT Specific intervention areas may inlcude: simulation for surgical training, planning and intervention prediction 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.
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 AfricaAction-Grid ARTreat - Multi-level patient-specific artery and atherogenesis model for outcome prediction, decision support treatment, and virtual hand-on trainingARTreat ContraCancrum - Clinically Oriented Translational Cancer Multilevel ModellingContraCancrum euHeart - Personalised and intergrated cardiac care: Patient-specific Cardiovascular Modelling and Simulation for In Silico Disease Understanding and Management and for Medical Device Evaluation and OptimizationeuHeart More to be found at: p7vph/index_en.htm
FP7 - Ideas Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier Research People – Human Potential Capacities – Research Capacity
FP7 - Ideas Supports “frontier research” All areas of science and technology – “bottom-up” approach Selection based on scientific excellence only Individual research teams (or collaboration) Implemented via the European Research Council (ERC)
FP7 - People Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier Research People – Human Potential Capacities – Research Capacity
FP7 - People Provides support for researcher mobility and career development For both researchers inside and outside the EU Objective – to make Europe more attractive to the best researchers Implemented via a set of Actions
FP7 - Capacities Cooperation – Collaborative research Ideas – Frontier Research People – Human Potential Capacities – Research Capacity
FP7- Capacities Aims to strengthen Europe’s research capacities through: Research Infrastructures Research for the benefit of SMEs Regions of Knowledge Research Potential Science in Society Specific Activities for International Cooperation
Competitivesness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) Aims: Foster the competitiveness of enterprises (especially SMEs) Promote innovation, including eco-innovation Accelerate the development of a competitive Information Society Promote energy efficiency and new/renewable energy sources (including transport) Programmes: Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme ICT Policy Support Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme
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 summaries ePrescription" and "Scaling up of eHealth services and supporting the EU eHealth governance initiative
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.
