• INCiPiT and the Independent Research on drugs funded by Italian Medicine Agency –AIFA Call 2017

    The Italian Medicine Agency (AIFA) has launched the seventh call for proposals on independent research (Bando AIFA 2017)
    It represents one of the strategic tasks assigned to AIFA by legislation which goes to reward projects able to enrich clinical and therapeutic knowledge in areas of lesser interest for profit research.
    The call for proposals is aimed at investigators, public and private entities operating in the field of health care and scientific research not for profit.
    In this call, five main areas (three in Bando AIFA 2016) of drug research has been included in the program.
    The deadline for submitting the project will be the 31th of January 2018.

  • EPTRI – European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure.

    ID-EPTRI Approval
    A great success for paediatric medicines development.
    The ID-EPTRI (European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure) project, coordinated by CVBF and submitted within the INFRADEV-2016-2017 single-stage call for proposals, aimed to create the framework for a new paediatric Research Infrastructure (RI) has been successfully evaluated and granted 3.00 million Euro in funding from the European Commission.
    The project will develop a new RI, EPTRI, that is complementary to the existing Biomed Research Infrastructures acting as a ‘Paediatric Common Service’ in the ESFRI Scenario. The project involves 26 partners from EU and non-EU countries including consolidated RIs, top-level universities, scientific and clinical centres of excellence in Europe and is aimed to create a Conceptual Design Report (CDR) to realize the European paediatric RI.
    INCiPiT will actively participate into the project.
