Nordic Innovation Network took the initiative to present the EU Research and Innovation programme titled Horizon 2020 and highlight the themes most relevant for NRI-Networks.
This information is of high relevance for other networks as well and hopefully will serve as an avenue to expand the activities within healthcare beyond the Nordic region.
Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument through which the Innovation Union is implemented. The programme period is 2014-202 and it consists of three programme sections - Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges.
In addition to Horizon 2020, there are other EU programmes that cover the topic of hospital innovation and could be of interest for the members of NRI-Networks.
