The Netherlands and Switzerland are jointly announcing a bilateral call for project proposals on eHealth. This call is connected to the Dutch-Swiss long-term strategies in public health laid down in The Federal Council’s health policy strategy 2020–2030 and the Dutch Knowledge & Innovation Agenda (KIA) on Health and Care 2020-2023.
The primary focus of this call will be on stimulating application-driven research and development of technologies and innovations that allow children and adolescents in the primary/secondary school context, as well as their families and (in)direct relatives, to gain insight into their own health, related to their daily functioning and (inter)related determinants, manage their health and daily functioning and contribute to health research (i.e. citizen science) through the use of health (related) data (“quantified self”-approach), with a view to improving both individual and population health (for instance via a personalised individual ePartner).
Potential applicants are invited to participate at the online information event, 24 February 2021, 13:30 – 16:15 (CEST). In this information session the scope and ambition of this joint call is further explained. Swiss and Dutch participants are invited to participate and to explore the possibilities for Swiss-Dutch collaborations. Registration and further information are available on https://ehealth-call-ch-nl.b2match.io.
The quality of the project and consortium is essential for its success. Organisers recommend to register their profiles on the online matchmaking platform https://ehealth-call-ch-nl.b2match.io/. The platform offers a marketplace, where project ideas, cooperation offers or requests etc. can be exchanged with the ambition to find synergies, cluster and select and integrate project ideas where possible and relevant. This interactive platform is the starting point of co-creating project proposals for high impact R&D projects and remains open for the whole duration of the call until 2 August 2021.
