EATRIS+ - Flagship in Personalised Medicines

Back to the "Projects" list

What?

In the first five years of operations, EATRIS has shown strong proof of concept of the value of the services portfolio, with users ranging from academia, SMEs, large pharma, to biotech and research funding organisations. The overarching aim of EATRIS-Plus is to support the long-term sustainability (LTS) of EATRIS by delivering innovative scientific tools to the research community, strengthening the infrastructure’s financial model and reinforcing EATRIS leadership in the European Research Area (ERA), particularly in the field of Personalised Medicine (PM) research and development.

 

With whom?

The project comprises 19 partners including all current national nodes of the research infrastructure, academic representatives of new prospective member countries as well as umbrella organisations representing the patients’ voice and biotech companies EATG’s role in the project Is to coordinate the Patients Advisory Committee (PAC).

 

How?

The omic tools will be developed and tested with a real-setting demonstrator, an already established cohort of 1,000 healthy individuals in Czechia upon whom genomic sequencing has been already performed. Information available on this healthy individual cohort will be augmented during the project with transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic data.

 

For what outcome?

By providing such toolbox to the research community, EATRIS-Plus will be the engine to enable high-quality research in the context of patient stratification and accelerate the implementation of Personalised Medicine solutions. EATRIS is the European Infrastructure for Translational Medicine providing services for accelerating biomedical innovation.

The main goals of the EATRIS-Plus will be to:

  • Consolidate EATRIS capacities in the field of Personalised Medicine (particularly omics technologies) to better serve academia and industry and augment the number of EATRIS Innovation Hubs with large pharma;
  • Drive patient empowerment through active involvement in the infrastructure’s operations;
  • Expand strategic partnerships with research infrastructures and other relevant stakeholders, and
  • Further strengthen the long-term sustainability of the EATRIS financial model.
