ERACoSysMed - Systems Medicine to address clinical needs
The ERA-Net ERACoSysMed "Collaboration on systems medicine funding to promote the implementation of systems biology approaches in clinical research and medical practice" started in January 2015 as the first ERA-Net on Systems Medicine under the EU Framework Programme Horizon2020.
The Coordination Action Systems Medicine, CASyM drafted a roadmap for the implementation of systems medicine in Europe. This roadmap has been the strategic guide to formulate key objectives of ERACoSysMed.
The 14 funding bodies participating in ERACoSysMed joined forces to enhance the implementation of systems biology approaches in both clinical research and medical practice throughout Europe and Israel. The challenge of establishing systems medicine in Europe is addressed by developing transnational cooperation between national ministries and funding bodies. As a common action, joint transnational calls have been implemented to demonstrate the feasibility and socio-economic benefits of systems medicine in clinical practice.
