Event Description

The current debate on the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9) offers the opportunity to articulate a long-term vision for biomedical and health research, and to address current gaps in support of excellent science. Developing such a vision for Europe is important to make sure that future research will continue to improve citizens’ health and quality of life.

To contribute to this debate, the FEAM European Biomedical Policy Forum’s annual lecture will bring together policy-makers and high-level representatives from across different biomedical sectors to present their vision for the future of biomedical and health research in Europe, and how the European Union’s funding programmes could help achieving this. In particular, the following topics will be addressed:

  • Thematic priorities for future biomedical and health research, in particular: i) What should be the research ‘moonshot’ missions in the health/biomedical area?; ii) How to link future research priorities with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
  • Current gaps in the support of biomedical and health research in Europe;
  • How to improve coordination and consolidation of biomedical research across Europe.
