WP5 - Integration of national efforts in Systems Medicine and within the EU

An effective and cost efficient implementation of Systems Medicine will need to maximise the economy of scales by considering integration with relevant funding schemes existing within Europe and in each individual country. Therefore, we will identify in close interaction with ministries and funding agencies all over Europe the existing programmes in Systems Medicine, relations to programmes in Systems Biology/Medicine and personalised medicine and explore the best ways of setting up new pan-European programmes in Systems Medicine.

WP5 focuses primarily on the public funders as stakeholders as most initiatives are being backed by national or sometimes regional funders. Where appropriate, industry as sponsor of national initiatives are being considered, too.
