Horizon 2020 Health Info Day
Ingemar Pongratz from Pongratz Consulting joined the Horizon 2020 Health Info day presentations in Brussels 2013-11-22.
Ingemar Pongratz joined the interesting presentations European Commission representatives presented the coming topics. Ingemar Pongratz from Pongratz Consulting attended the SME session and the Omics session.
The SME Instrument is interesting but there are still some questions marks regarding implementation and how this funding Instrument will work in the future. The SME Instrument will include three different stages:
- Stage 1 is a preparatory stage to analyze the viability of your idea.
- Stage 2 is close to market and you are expected to have something close to a prototype in place.
- Stage 3 will provide support to enter the market, but no funding
What will happens between the end of Stage 1 and the start of Stage 2?
In reality there is a long time between finalizing the Business plan and reaching a prototype…
The “Omics” session presented topics which couples “Omics” technology to personalized health. This connection is very interesting.
There is a clear connection, in my opinion, between previous EU funded investments to future possibilities. These topics also takes advantage of European investments by Member States in register information for future research.
I hope these investments will produce a wealth of new scientific knowledge, new innovative products and services
