Regions of Knowledge - eHealth
This year's call for proposals of the Regions of Knowledge Initiative (FP7) is set to focus on e-Health. The aim of the RoK initiative is to strengthen the research potential of European regions through the development of research-driven clusters on a regional basis, based on a triple-helix partnership of universities, research centres and public authorities. A minimum of three regions from three different Member States must be involved in each bid.
The 2010 call, likely to be launched at the end of July, will fund:
- analysis, development and implementation of research agendas for regional clusters;
- mentoring of regions with a less-developed research profile by highly developed ones;
- initiatives to improve integration; and
- dissemination activities.
