PREFERENCE IS GIVEN TO PEOPLE WHO RECEIVED SPECIFIC INVITATIONS FOR THIS SEMINAR

 

The goal of this session is to showcase successful avenues for excellence in research and development for Global Health, with a particular focus on the benefits of international and cross-sectorial cooperation. While negotiations on Horizon 2020 continue, financing for research and development for Global Health will be addressed primarily by the EDCTP, but also ERC and possibly IMI. We would look at how these instruments are generating opportunities to expand and accelerate R&D for PRNDs by rewarding scientific excellence and fostering the collaboration between partners with distinct areas of expertise and capacities.
