With the ongoing Match Call, research organisations, health foundations and companies (startups, SMEs and industry) are invited to jointly invest in research and development (R&D) for the benefit of evidence-based innovation. By doing this they will jointly help build a strong and sustainable LSH sector that contributes to the global challenge ‘Health and Care’.
