European Funding

Up one level

European Funding allocated to Nanomedicine-related projects

Research in Nanomedicine is widely supported by the European Commission through its Framework Programmes for Research and Development, FP7 as well as as the current Horizon 2020.

 

Logo FP7     Logo Horizon 2020

 

in FP7, nanotechnologies for healthcare applications were the topic of 85 Projects in Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies - FP7-NMP (corresponding to an EU contribution of about 400 mio €) and of 31 Projects in FP7-Health (corresponding to an EU contribution of about 150 mio €).

 

In Horizon 2020, nanomedicine research is eligible for funding under the 3 pillars of the framework programme (excellent Science, Industrial Leadership, Societal Challenges), however with a stronger focus on nanomedicine translation under the NMP programme: http://ec.europa.eu/research/industrial_technologies/nano-in-healthcare_en.html

 

Past and current calls for proposal of the European Commission can be found on the EC's participant portal.

 

 

Further subprogrammes of the European Commission support nanomedicine-related projects:

 

  • ICT (Micro-Nano-Bio-Systems)
  • PEOPLE (Marie-Curie Training bursaries and training networks)
  • ERC - European Research Council (Frontier research)
  • EuroNanoMed (ERANET, trans-national projects)
  • EuroSTARS (Eureka ~ EU)
