The European Commission pre-published on 12 October 2017 the draft 2018-2020 work programme part for Societal Challenge 1 'Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing', see: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/sites/horizon2020/files/vs.10.2_for_pre-publication_h2020-sc1-2018-2020_10_09_2017.pdf

Key topics in the future work programme include ‘Better Health and care, economic growth and sustainable health,’ ‘Digital transformation in Health and Care,’ and ‘Trusted digital solutions and Cybersecurity in Health and Care,’ so N. Ireland research and innovation is well positioned to access funding in these future emerging areas.

The event will be officially opened by Dr Andrew McCormick of the Department for the Economy and guest speakers include Dr Janice Bailie, Assistant Director of HSC R&D Division.
