Horizon 2020 New research calls for ‘Health, demographic change & wellbeing’

Work Programme 2018-2020 and funding opportunities

The multi-annual work programme for 2018-2020 in Horizon 2020, the EU’s research funding instrument, has now been published. This is the final cycle of the Horizon 2020 programme. With the principle of research for better health for all at its core, Horizon 2020’s Societal Challenge 1 (SC1)  Health Demographic Change and Wellbeing focuses on personalised health and care. The new deadlines for submission start on April 18th.  Although broadly focused in nature, the topics can be applied to research in kidney disease prevention and management. Such challenge-based (rather than disease-focused) approach, means that the fundamental criterion to obtain funding is scientific quality. The current Horizon 2020 programme (2014-2020) has already supported 22 projects specifically in kidney health with a cumulated contribution of EURO 47.6 million.

Work Program 2018-2020 work programme includes the following health themes:

  • Personalised medicine
  • Rare diseases
  • Infectious diseases
  • Non-communicable diseases
  • Big data
  • eHealth
  • Integration of care
