EC Launches New Information Portal on Health Research
The European commission has launched a new information portal for the FP7 Health research theme. Specific sub-sites of the Health Portal are devoted to Health Biotechnology, Genomics & Systems Biology, Medical Research, Infectious Diseases, Public Health, and Innovative Medicines Initiative. Dedicated focus pages explore the overarching issues applicable across the theme. Among others, the website contains information on upcoming events, policy issues, ongoing EC-funded research projects and an online library. Information on open calls will also be made available.
