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.
The following topics are currently under consideration for inclusion in future IMI calls for proposals (Call 14):
- Targeted immune intervention for treatment of non-response and remission
- Non-invasive clinical molecular imaging of immune cells
- Development of a platform for federated and privacy-preserving machine learning in support of drug discovery
- Centre of excellence – remote decentralised clinical trials
Details about these topics you can find on the IMI website.
All information regarding future IMI call topics is of course indicative and may be subject to change. Final information about future IMI calls will be communicated after approval by the IMI Governing Board.
