Vinnova invites you to an information meeting on the funding opportunities for 2018-2020 with focus on the intersection between Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Life Science/Health research.

On the 27th of October all upcoming calls for 2018 and 2019 were published by the European Commission. These contain a vast amount of opportunities within the intersection between ICT and Life Science/Health research. The digitalization within the health sector raises opportunities as well as challenges. The support for collaborative research that EU provide gives the opportunity to join forces between ICT and Life Science researchers.

The event provides an opportunity to meet representatives from the European Commission as well as National Contact Points for ICT and Health.

The meeting will be held in English.

The event will be web-streamed from our website. Please find the event in our calender: https://www.vinnova.se/sa-framjar-vi-innovation/kalender/
