EU Funds - Call 14 Innovative Medicines Initiative - IMI2
The Innovative Medicines Initiative published indicative topics of the 14th call for proposals.
To give potential applicants as much time as possible to form consortia and prepare their proposals, IMI regularly publishes draft topic texts several weeks before the official Call launch. Indicative topics of Call 14 are now online.
Innovative Medicines Initiative - IMI
IMI is the world's biggest public-private partnership (PPP) in the life sciences. It is a partnership between the European Union (represented by the European Commission) and the European pharmaceutical industry (represented by EFPIA, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations). Through Horizon 2020, IMI2 programme has a €3.3 billion budget for the period 2014-2020.
The goal of IMI, particularly in its second phase (IMI2, 2014-2020) is to develop next generation vaccines, medicines and treatments, such as new antibiotics. IMI2 aims to facilitate the collaboration between the key players involved in healthcare research, including universities, research centres, the pharmaceutical and other industries, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), patient organisations, and medicines regulators.
Call 14, indicative topics
Draft topic texts are subject to consultations involving IMI's States Representatives Group, Scientific Committee, and the European Commission. They must also be approved by the IMI Governing Board.
