24 projects for Translational Research Call

Jointly ten health foundations, ZonMw, and Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (LSH) have granted 24 projects within the Translational Research Call. The involved organisations joined forces on  participation of patients and industry in research & development. It seems to be of great importance, because it often leads to a goal oriented approach and focus on implementation of research results. With this in mind the collaboration on the joined call started in the beginning of 2016.

From research to clinical application
The call focusses on translational research that translates results of fundamental scientific research into application in the clinic. Without translational research, medical inventions may not sufficiently reach the patients. In addition, translational research contributes to highly qualified prevention and healthcare. The collaborating parties highlight the necessity to provide promising treatment methods for patients. So by joining forces the available resources for this kind of research are amplified and used more efficiently.

Granted projects by Health~Holland
Of total 24 granted projects, nine projects involve a collaboration between a research organisaties and at least one company. These nine projects are co-financed by Health~Holland and will be monitored by ZonMw and a representative from Health~Holland, the executive office of the Top Sector Life Sciences & Health.
