Securing Adoption of Personalised Health in REgions

Project description

A regional strategy for tailoring therapy for the patient

The development of personalised medicine is highly technological driven. Surfing on the convergence of bio-, nano-, digital technologies, and engineering, this development offers a huge potential for innovation. In this context, the EU-funded SAPHIRe project will emphasise on the potential of European regions as hot spots for innovation to accelerate the development and implementation of personalised medicine and inform the International Consortium on Personalised Medicine. The overall aim is to present a modular roadmap to develop and implement personalised medicine, taking regional specific needs and assets into account. The activities will include the establishment and support of networking between regions and interregional cooperation. The network will cover regional decision-makers, as well as patient organisations and healthcare actors.

Objective

SAPHIRE or the consortium for Securing Adoption of Personalised Health in REgions:

The consortium eSAPHIRE or the consortium for Securing Adoption of Personalised Health in REgions:
The consortium engages to help structuring the application of personalised medicine (PM) at regional level and contribute to the implementation and reach of the International Consortium on Personalised Medicine (ICPerMed) to develop its roadmap and Action Plan, while taken regional specific needs into account.
Efforts will be taken to express the regional voice within ICPerMed. The activities will include the establishment and support of networking between regions and interregional cooperation, and in particular linking remote or sparsely populated regions with regions harbouring critical mass of medical and PM expertise, while taking into account broader socio-economic and cultural aspects. The network will cover regional policy and decision makers, opinion leaders, regulatory agencies, regional development agencies, cluster organisations, patient organisations and regional knowledge institutions, healthcare actors, ... and will bring regional strengths, needs and barriers to the attention of national and European level. Based on a thorough mapping exercise and addressing specific regional needs, while taken the different levels of PM adoption into account, a modular regional roadmap for PM implementation will be developed.
Actions will be taken to support interregional collaborations in the field of PM and identify opportunities for funding or investment by the framework programme, the structural funds or the EIB, whereby efforts will be taken to link remote and sparsely populated regions to regions that are more advanced in PM implementation. Alignment will also be made to smart specialisation initiatives focussing on PM.
The integrated approach of SAPHIRE should accelerate the implementation of PM across the European regions, thereby accelerating the uptake of PM in general.
