European Partnership - ERA for Health Research

Health is an area where, since 2003, several pilots have developed a healthy ecosystem of public-public partnerships. In the wider European Research Area (ERA), some 80% of all national public research investment is made by some 15 research funders, including the European Commission.

There is an unnecessary duplication of procedures, meetings and in some cases diversification of criteria. This partnership will be an instrumental platform for flexible joint programming of research programmes, effectively coordinating most of these funding organisations, including most smaller EU research funders.

European Partnership on Health and Care Systems Transformation

The partnership aims to contribute to the transition towards more sustainable, resilient, innovative and high-quality people-centred health and care systems.

It will pool a critical mass of European, national and regional scientific resources to more efficiently address similar challenges related to health and care systems transformation.

As a result, the context relevant evidence will meet the needs of national/regional health and care systems by facilitating the transfer and uptake of cost-effective technological, service, organisational and policy innovations.
