Improving the prevention, treatment and cure of infectious diseases

Posted on: 12/04/2018

KTN invites expressions of interest for an EU partnering event on infectious diseases, taking place on 22nd May in London.

The Horizon 2020 topic “Stratified host-directed approaches to improve prevention, treatment and/or cure of infectious diseases” aims to optimise therapeutic, curative or preventive measures against infectious diseases of major concern for Europe. With this call in mind, KTN – working collaboration with Innovate UK, UK Research Office (UKRO) and the French Horizon 2020 Contact Point for Health – is inviting expressions of interest to participate in an EU bilateral partnering event on infectious diseases.

The aim of this event is to foster and facilitate the development of R&D project consortia for Horizon 2020 projects by providing a platform for new collaborations, especially between small and medium enterprises and research organisations.

The event is open to SMEs, larger companies, technology centres, universities and research organisations.
