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:
- Rare diseases
- Paediatric diseases
- Gender medicine
- Safety and efficacy of drugs in elderly and ultra-elderly populations
- Antibiotic resistance
The deadline for presenting the project will be the 31th of January 2018.
As a No-profit Consortium, INCiPiT is composed by the main Italian Paediatric Hospitals and Scientific Institutes for Research, Hospitalization and Health Care (IRCCS) and other Institutions, which operate at different level in paediatric research and it is undertaking to present several projects also in this call 2017, either as a Research Unit or as a support of its members.
AIFA call for proposals will provide the possibility to strengthen the collaboration between INCiPiT members and to test the capabilities of the Consortium.
