The IdiPAZ Internationalisation Platform constitutes a service tool for supporting IdiPAZ researchers who wish either to increase their influence or to keep being a reference in the Health Research international environment, with particular focus in the European funding schemes and framework programmes.


The main objective is to promote the different research groups of IdiPAZ at international level. Thus, identifying possible synergies between groups and centres, new partners and funding sources, as well as forging strategic alliances.

   Specific ojectives:
  • To conduct active monitoring of international funding programs for Research & Innovation.
  • To flag and disseminate relevant opportunities and calls for IdiPAZ research groups.
  • To identify and actively participate in international networks of interest for the centre.
  • To introduce and disseminate the capabilities of the centre and its research groups.
  • To recognise, define, validate and develop project ideas that emerge in the centre.
  • To support and encourage participation in information events.
  • To organise and host information and training sessions on specific required areas.
  • To advise on the proposal preparation and the negotiation phase with the European Commission
  • To manage the approved projects.
The ninth framework programme for R&I has started in 2021 and will last until the end of 2027. It has a confirmed budget of € 95,000 million and a drive towards innovation, competitiveness and societal impact to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Among the novelties, it aims to achieve bold but measurable goals through the new five Mission areas (one of which is Cancer).

The coordination of efforts for the participation in Pillar 3 “Innovative Europe” belongs to IdiPAZ’s Innovation Support Unit.
The Health Program of the EU is the main instrument available to the European Commission to carry out its vision for a healthier Union. It aims to go beyond crisis response and benefit healthcare systems’ resilience through several modalities of funding. including Action Grants available to consortia of EU institutions.

The total budget of the third program is 5,300 million euros for the period 2021-2027.

COST is the oldest (established in 1971) and widest European intergovernmental framework for transnational Cooperation in Science and Technology. Its aim is to enable breakthrough scientific developments leading to new concepts and products. COST programme supports the creation of research networks: funding meetings, staff hosting and training. Although it not covers research activities themselves, like purchases or hiring new staff.

The calls are continuously open with two court dates per year.
