KTN and Innovate UK to host briefing webinar for H2020 Calls in Digital Health

Posted on 19/07/2019

Overview

A briefing webinar is taking place on 7 August 2019 at 12pm (UK time) to give an overview of Horizon 2020 (H2020) DIGITAL HEALTH related Call topics.

An ageing population is increasing demand-side pressures on public health and social care providers across Europe. These pressures undermine the long-term sustainability of existing models for delivering care services to the ageing population. The challenge is to scale up outcome-based innovative digital health and care solutions across EU borders through joining up actions in procurement of innovation. Forthcoming Call Topics look to address these challenges.

KTN and the National Contact Points for H2020 will host an online webinar on 7 August 2019 at 12pm (UK time), to brief potential applicants, and give an overview of the Calls, Topics and support that will be available to UK organisations. There will also be information on UK participation in H2020 post March 2019.

 

The following funding Call Topics will be covered in the scope of the webinar. More details on each of the Call Topics are below:
