Throughout 2016, members of ICPerMed developed a common Action Plan with actionable research and support activities in all areas related to personalised medicine. The basis for this was the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) published by a predecessor project, PerMed. These actions are a selection of all activities identified, with a focus on those deemed ‘ready for action’.
The resulting Action Plan, published in March 2017, sets out a discrete set of activities which will form the basis of the work programme for ICPerMed members and other interested funders over the next two years.
The aim of ICPerMed is that over the next two years, ICPerMed members and the European Commission (EC) will work together to implement these actions, reporting regularly on progress and sharing knowledge, and bringing benefits to citizens and health systems.
Five Action Item Groups were initiated to address these aims.
