«Empowering Climate Resilience: EU Mission on Climate Adaptation Unveils New Portal and Announces Open Calls for Transformative Solutions»

The European Union’s Mission on Climate Adaptation has recently unveiled its new Mission Portal. This comprehensive online platform offers valuable information about the mission, including climate data, the latest progress updates, and news relevant to regional and local authorities participating as Charter Signatories, as well as research projects. The Community of Practice serves as a collaborative space where Charter Signatories, Mission projects, the European Commission (EC), and other participating authorities can engage in knowledge exchange and joint implementation efforts.

Moreover, several open calls have been announced within the Mission on Climate Adaptation, with a submission deadline set for September 30, 2023:

  • HORIZON-MISS-2023-CLIMA-01-01: This call seeks proposals for testing and showcasing innovative solutions that enhance the climate resilience of the agriculture and/or forestry sectors.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2023-CLIMA-01-02: This call invites proposals that test and demonstrate groundbreaking solutions aimed at safeguarding critical infrastructure from climate change impacts, with an emphasis on integrating nature-based approaches.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2023-CLIMA-01-03: This call requests proposals for testing and demonstrating transformative solutions designed to bolster resilience against health risks stemming from climate change effects.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2023-CLIMA-OCEAN-SOIL-01-01: This call encourages proposals that demonstrate, at a regional level, an integrated strategy for enhancing landscape water retention capacity.

These open calls provide a valuable opportunity for innovative projects to contribute to the EU’s climate adaptation efforts and help build a more resilient future.

IHI – Innovative Health Initiative: Lanzamiento y evento informativo (26 Enero)

Presentación de Innovative Health Initiative: IHI – El nuevo partenariado Europeo en Salud

La antigua IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative) se convierte en IHI (Innovative Health Initiative). La IHI es una asociación entre la Unión Europea y las asociaciones industriales que representan a los sectores implicados en la asistencia sanitaria, a saber, COCIR (industrias de imagen médica, radioterapia, TIC sanitarias y electromedicina); EFPIA, incluida Vaccines Europe (industria farmacéutica e industria de las vacunas); EuropaBio (industria biotecnológica); y MedTech Europe (industria de la tecnología médica).

Los objetivos del IHI se establecen en la legislación por la que se crea el IHI. Los objetivos generales son:

  • convertir la investigación y la innovación sanitarias en beneficios reales para los pacientes y la sociedad;
  • ofrecer innovaciones sanitarias seguras y eficaces que cubran todo el espectro asistencial -desde la prevención hasta el diagnóstico y el tratamiento-, sobre todo en ámbitos en los que haya una necesidad de salud pública no cubierta.
  • hacer que las industrias sanitarias europeas sean competitivas a nivel mundial.

Una jornada informativa que tendrá lugar el 26 de enero de este mes servirá para presentar las novedades del IHI a la comunidad. La inscripción ya está abierta: LINK HERE
