Call for PPP projects for the development of Human Measurement Models
The Association of Dutch Health Foundations (SGF) and the Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (LSH) have made € 3.2 million PPP Allowance (financial resources for public-private partnerships) available for the development of Human Measurement Models. This call is being made in collaboration with ZonMw and NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences (AES).
The call for Human Measurement Models aims to encourage the development of new, more efficient, more predictable human measurement models for health research so that research results can be applied better and faster to people. This makes science less dependent on the use of laboratory animal models, which is in line with the Animal-free Innovation Transition Programme (TPI).
Depending on the type of research (fundamental, industrial or experimental) and the contributions by private and public partners within the project, between € 500,000 and € 1 million PPP Allowance can be applied for. An important condition is that an application must consist of a collaboration with at least one research organisation and at least one private party. Project applications can be submitted from the start of July 2019 onwards. The deadline for the mandatory pre-proposal is 1 September 2019. More information about the call will be published on the SGF website and Top Sector LSH website at the start of July.
For more information about the conditions for eligibility for PPP Allowance, please refer to the Top Sector LSH website or contact them directly.
A matchmaking event will be organized in September 2019 to further inform parties about the application process and provide opportunities to explore mutual cooperation.
