Horizon Europe is the most important current programme in terms of forthcoming European funding opportunities for R+D projects in mental health. Other programs such as EU4Health or Horizon Europe’s own partnerships are also planned to launch calls for tenders in the near future.

Ruiz has shared and deepened the characteristics, requirements, dates and strategies to stand for the European calls of this 2022.

About the Breakfast&Learn

The Breakfast&Learn is a formative initiative dedicated to innovation, valorization and transfer with a special focus on mental health and technology, led by the TECSAM network with the collaboration of the Catalan mental health cluster, Cluster Salut Mental Catalunya (CSMC). These open meetings are expected to be a monthly space where knowledge is shared and synergies and networking are generated, where the speakers will be guests with expertise in the sector, including administration, research, the private sector, as well as users and families. 

The meetings will focus on three major thematic areas: Tools for bringing society and research closer together (innovation, marketing, contact with the private sector, business models, spin offs, empowerment of affected and user people…), tools for protecting research results (intellectual protection, patents, other protection models…), and tools for doing research with clinical research (ethical regulatory aspects, medical devices, digital tools, software…). 

In the next few weeks, the TECSAM Network will confirm the final timetable for these meetings.
