Nordic innovation funding agencies launch call on personalised medicine

Nordic innovation funding agencies are launching in collaboration with NordForsk a call for proposals with the aim of funding Nordic projects that contribute to implementation of personalized medizine in health care.

The scope of the "Nordic Permed" call focuses on three challenges:

Data: Knowledge and value generation

Health economics: Research and development of health economics models

Small and large private enterprises as well as universities and other public research institutions and hospitals in the Nordic countries are eligible to apply for funding.

The applicant consortium must consist of participants from at least three co-funding Nordic countries, alternatively from two co-funding Nordic countries and one third country.

The NordicPermed call for proposals will be administered by NordForsk. The individual members of the funded applicant consortia will be funded by their national funding agencies. The expected funding available per project is in the order of EUR 1-3 million for a duration of up to 4 years.

Full details of the call are expected to be published on the NordForsk website and on the websites of the funding partners by March 2018.
