The aim of the “European network staff eXchange for integrAting precision health in the health Care sysTems (ExACT)” is to train a new generation of professionals that can contribute to the future of health and healthcare (HC), by providing high-quality, multidisciplinary knowledge in precision health. The greater personalisation of HC is a driver of innovation for research, and for the healthcare system and industry. Still policy makers, HC professionals, citizens, and private companies need to take some steps to realize its potential. In order to harness this challenging landscape, the ExACT consortium provides a cohesive framework for training staff across 7 EU Countries, 1 AC and 2 TCs. During 4 years, the staff involved will be trained on research topics not available at the home institutions thanks to 74 secondments. They will attend courses, workshops, seminars, conferences, and will participate in organizing outreach activities, thus acquiring new skills. Research topics include: Integration of Big Data and digital solutions into the HC systems; Designing and promoting innovative citizen engagement models; Education of healthcare professionals and leadership; Health Technology Assessment in precision health; Ethical-legal, social, organisational and policy issues surrounding precision health. ExACT is embedded in existing cooperation structures, such as the RISE-PRECeDI project, IC PerMed, and CSA TO-REACH. The consortium consists of 15 beneficiaries and 2 partners, of which 10 are academic institutions including Stanford University where a precision health program has been launched, and 7 non academics including 2 SMEs. The participants will produce key reports, policy recommendations, scientific publications, and information materials for citizens, thus fostering public-private interactions. In the long run, ExACT will foster the integration of precision health in the EU HC systems, thus contributing to better health for Europeans citizens.
