The Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment and the Minister for Health are now calling for Irish businesses and researchers within the BioPharma, MedTech and Health industries to submit project proposals that fit the scope of the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) funding scheme.

What type of projects will fit the health IPCEI scope?

Accepted health IPCEI projects are likely to be large-scale, multi-country projects that use state-of-the-art innovation to address market or systemic failures within the health sector.

Successful proposals will need to be centred around one of these four themes:

  1. The modernisation of production processes
  2. Innovative products in new therapeutical areas
  3. Personalised medicine and MedTech
  4. Health crisis preparedness

Favourable State Aid Rules apply, so to win this public-sector funding, projects will need to demonstrate how the proposed R&D work will support European industry and strengthen its global competitiveness within the health sector.

What type of companies can apply for this IPCEI funding?

This is a call for any business or research organisation within the BioPharma, MedTech and Health industry that’s willing to work with other European organisations to participate in a project that falls within the scope of the Health IPCEI.

Why apply for this IPCEI funding?

Not only will successful IPCEI funded projects attract investment and create new jobs, but this IPCEI funding opportunity is also a fantastic chance for medical organisations within Ireland to cross-collaborate with European companies and work on revolutionary R&D projects to:

  • Develop new therapeutics
  • Create personalised treatments
  • Provide new ways to help us prepare for future health crises
