IMI becomes IHI
Conscious that future breakthroughs in healthcare and medical science will be the result of cross-sectorial discoveries, IMI needed to evolve. Europe is at a crossroads, facing increasing challenges on several fronts while at the same time, technological and scientific advances offer new opportunities to solve these challenges. Bridging the gap to address today's health and translational challenges will require a multi-sector public-private partnership.
The successes of IMI and the knowledge gleaned from 14 years of experience and almost 200 projects means that IHI will ensure Europe remains at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary, sustainable, patient-centric health research.
- Pioneer the patient-centred integration of knowledge, technology and products
- Tackle each and every aspect of care to improve lives of patients across Europe and beyond
- Strengthen Europe’s position at the forefront of medical innovation
- Address current and future health challenges
EFPIA members committed nearly 3 billion Euros across IMI1, IMI2 and IHI to progress biomedical research and address patients and societal needs.
How can this Partnership help solve significant current and future health challenges in different healthcare areas?
