Innovative Health Initiative (IHI) - Kick-off and brokerage event
The Innovative Health Initiative (IHI) will launch its first calls for proposals in late June 2022. To support the creation of project proposals and the establishment of strong and effective consortia, IHI will organise a kick-off and brokerage event. This one-day hybrid event will take place on 14 June 2022 at Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels.
The event will be divided into two sessions:
- Calls for proposals: IHI will present the content of the calls and outline the rules for participation. Topics covered will be the research priorities of IHI, call conditions, and even specific opportunities for SMEs.
- Consortia building: there will be available time slots to make short elevator pitches on your proposals. Whether you are in the room or in a virtual environment, you can book meetings with representatives who have an interest in the same topics.
Participation is free of charge. Registration will open soon; the preliminary agenda is available via the IHI website.
