IHI – Innovative Health Initiative launch – Information event 26th January

Introducing the Innovative Health Initiative: Europe’s new partnership for health

Former IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative) turns into IHI (Innovative Health Initiative). IHI is a partnership between the European Union and industry associations representing the sectors involved in healthcare, namely COCIR (medical imaging, radiotherapy, health ICT and electromedical industries); EFPIA, including Vaccines Europe (pharmaceutical industry and vaccine industry); EuropaBio (biotechnology industry); and MedTech Europe (medical technology industry).

IHI’s objectives are set out in the legislation creating IHI. General objectives are to:

  • turn health research and innovation into real benefits for patients and society;
  • deliver safe, effective health innovations that cover the entire spectrum of care – from prevention to diagnosis and treatment – particularly in areas where there is an unmet public health need;
  • make Europe’s health industries globally competitive.

An information day on 26th January this month will introduce the novelties of IHI to the community. Registration is already open: LINK HERE
