Personalised Health Care Initiative in Europe FET-Flagship

The Personalised Health Care Initiative is a large-scale scientific and technological proposal that will address the grand challenge of developing regenerative, precision and personalised medicine to improve the quality of life of billions of patients worldwide.

The proposal is co-ordinated by the University of Minho, and is supported by a Steering Committee of 15 members, including the University of Southampton (Faculty of Medicine), representing academia and industry leaders from across Europe. This Flagship Personalised Health Care proposal is supported by a large number of organisations, including over 140 academic and health institutes, 40 research institutes, 95 industry and associations and 25 regional and national authorities. Support is drawn from 31 countries, including 27 EU and Associated Countries.

Through a multi-actor and multi-disciplinary approach, the initiative will focus on the development of targeted and specific therapies for diseases that have an impact on society and the patient, the development of new technologies, and preventive and predictive tools.

FET Flagships remain one of the most prestigious, highly-funded, strongest and game-changing instruments of EU research.  FET Flagships will involve a total budget of approximately €1 billion including EU and public and private funding.
