Start of Support Action Nanomed 2020
The Nanomed 2020 project "Enabling the European Nanomedicine Area until 2020" is starting on 1st September 2012.
The Nanomed2020 Support Action (SA) project, funded by the European Commission under the Work Programme FP7-HEALTH-2012 (Area 2012.4.1-5: Preparing the future for health research and innovation) will be launched on 1st September 2012.
This project, aiming at building a pertinent European Nanomedicine community involving all key players necessary to define the resources, gaps and needs for development and implementation of nanomedical research into marketable innovations to be used by doctors for the benefit of patients, is a great opportunity for the ETP Nanomedicine to provide to the European Commission with input for a future Nanomedicine topic within Horizon 2020 and to reinforce the collaboration with the clinical community. Furthermore, implementation concepts for the initiation of Public Private Partnerships and for the creation of novel infrastructures and innovative funding programmes will be also part of the objectives of the Support Action.
The main output will be a strong, established partnership of relevant stakeholders in identified key areas of Nanomedicine with new concepts for translation of nanomedical innovations into clinical practice and efficient and transparent communication channels. This will make Nanomedicine at large and the ETPN in particular important contributors to the future European healthcare system with a beneficial impact on improved treatment for patients and on social challenges such as ageing population.
