When:Tu 10-07-2018 16:00 - 18:00
Where:Jantina Tammeszaal; University of Groningen Library (City Centre), Broerstraat 4, 9712 CP Groningen (Building 1211 Room 0428).
Funding

The Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health, the Strategy Department for Education and Research, Section Research and Funding, and the UMCG Grant Support Hub jointly would like to invite you to a Health H2020 networking event.

The purpose of the meeting is to inform you about the next round of Health related calls within H2020 and to promote opportunities to strengthen collaboration among researchers working on health related issues from different disciplines. This will be a pilot experience and we expect to learn from each other.

The event is meant for RUG and UMCG researchers.

We selected the below listed calls with deadlines end of 2018 and 2019. If you would like to join, please check the list  and tick the most interesting ones in your registration. We will prepare a short presentation of the ‘most wanted’ calls. Then we will organise “round tables” devoted to each of these calls and make sure that you will have plenty of opportunity to exchange your views and expertise with your fellow researchers, join interesting networks or build new ones, and start innovative collaborations.

Snacks and drinks to accompany your discussions will be provided.

We aim for a maximum of 30 participants, so please make sure to register in time by 28 June 2018.

If you have any questions please contact Gema Ocana Noriega ( g.ocana.noriega@rug.nl ) and Anja Smykowski ( a.b.smykowski@umcg.nl ).


SELECTED CALLS:

The Human Exposome Project: a toolbox for assessing and addressing the impact of

( SC1-BHC-28-2019 ) - deadline 16 April 2019

Priorities: socio-economic sciences and humanities involvement

Applicants should take advantage of the last decade's rapid technological advances which have opened up new opportunities to collect, combine and analyse large data sets offering new possibilities to understand the contribution of environmental factors to the global health burden of common chronic diseases.

  • use innovative approaches to the systematic and agnostic identification of the most important environmental risk factors for the development of major NCDs across the life course (including in utero)

  • leading to preventive interventions at the individual, group or population level and contribute to sustainable healthcare.

  • Well-designed retrospective epidemiological studies may be included and proposals may envisage the creation of a prospective Europe-wide exposomics cohort and biobank, integrating behavioural, socio-economic factors and clinical records.


Big data and Artificial Intelligence for monitoring health status and quality of life after the cancer treatment

( SC1-DTH-01-2019 ) – deadline 24 April 2019

Priorities: socio-economic sciences and humanities involvement, open science

Proposals should focus and deliver on how to better acquire, manage, share, model, process and exploit big data using, if appropriate, high performance computing to effectively monitor health status of individual patients, provide overall actionable insights at the point of care and improve quality of life after the cancer treatment.

Relevant solutions include for example systems for determining and monitoring (taking also in account gender differences) the combined effects of cancer treatment, environment, lifestyle and genetics on the quality of life, enabling early identification of effects that can cause development of new medical conditions and/or impair the quality of life.

Proposals preferably address relevant health economic issues, use patient reported outcome and experience measures (PROMs and PREMs) and take into account the relevant social aspects of health status and quality of life after cancer treatment. Integrated solutions should include suitable approaches towards security and privacy issues.


Support for the large scale uptake of open service platforms in the Active and Healthy Ageing domain

( SC1-HCC-02-2019 ) – deadline 24 April 2019

Priorities: socio-economic sciences and humanities involvement, open science

Proposals should deliver an inventory of the state of the art and analyse the use of open service platforms in the Active and Healthy Ageing domain, covering both open platforms -such as universAAL[1] and FIWARE[2]- and partly-open/proprietary platforms developed by industry. In addition, proposals should address interactions between platforms.

Proposals should elaborate a methodology that monitors open platform development, adoption and spread across Europe, with relevant KPI’s, factors that support or hinder the uptake of open platforms in Europe, including the associated evolution of the ecosystems and stakeholder networks.


Implementation research for maternal and child health

( SC1-BHC-19-2019 ) – deadline 2 October 2018

Priorities: socio-economic sciences and humanities involvement, international collaboration

Proposals should focus on implementation research[3] for improving maternal and child health with a focus on the first '1000 days' from pregnancy until two years of age.[4] This research can take place in either high income countries or low and middle income countries, or in a combination thereof.

The implementation research in the first 1000 days may cover:

  • new or improved health service delivery interventions that strengthen maternal and child health; and/or

  • the scaling up and/or adapting of existing evidence-based interventions to new contexts.

Neither pre-clinical research nor clinical trials in the context of product development are within the scope of this call.


Mining big data for early detection of infectious disease threats driven by climate change and other factors

( SC1-BHC-13-2019 ) – deadline 16 April 2019

Priorities: open science

It is expected that proposals develop:

  • the technology to allow the pooling, access, analysis and sharing of relevant data, including next generation sequencing;

  • the innovative bio-informatics and modelling methodologies that enable risk modelling and mapping; and

  • the analytical tools for early warning, risk assessment and monitoring of (re-)emerging infectious disease threats.


Smart and healthy living at home

( DT-TDS-01-2019 ) – deadline 14 November 2018

Priorities: socio-economic sciences and humanities involvement, open innovation

A mix of advanced ICT ranging from biophotonics to robotics, from artificial intelligence to big data and from IoT to smart wearables can address these challenges. A platform for smart living at home should integrate these technologies in an intelligent manner.

The pilots should build on open platforms, standardised ontologies, APIs and results from IoT-based smart living environments, service robotics and smart wearable & portable systems and clearly go beyond current state of the art in terms of scale, the capabilities for personalisation, adaptation, and user acceptance.


Stratified host-directed approaches to improve prevention, treatment and/or cure of infectious diseases

( SC1-BHC-14-2019 ) – deadline 2 October 2018

Priorities: socio-economic sciences and humanities involvement

Proposals should develop and implement intervention(s) that an employer/organization can take to promote good mental health and prevent mental illness in the workplace. These interventions can be newly developed or improvements on existing ones. They should address challenges in mental health in the workplace in the EU. The interventions should be assessed in terms of direct and indirect individual and collective health outcomes and cost-effectiveness, implementation facilitators and barriers. Research should be multidisciplinary, including social sciences and the humanities.


Mental health in the workplace

( SC1-BHC-22-2019 ) – deadline 2 October 2018
