  • Action Plan

    Throughout 2016, members of ICPerMed developed a common Action Plan with actionable research and support activities in all areas related to personalised medicine. The basis for this was the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) published by a predecessor project, PerMed. These actions are a selection of all activities identified, with a focus on those deemed ‘ready for action’.

    The resulting Action Plan, published in March 2017, sets out a discrete set of activities which will form the basis of the work programme for ICPerMed members and other interested funders over the next two years.

    The aim of ICPerMed is that over the next two years, ICPerMed members and the European Commission (EC) will work together to implement these actions, reporting regularly on progress and sharing knowledge, and bringing benefits to citizens and health systems.

    Creation process of the ICPerMed Action Plan

    How the Action Plan was developed

    Throughout 2016, members of ICPerMed worked to develop a roadmap with actionable research activities, based on the PerMed SRIA, other strategic publications, interviews and discussions as well as the contributions at the Personalised Medicine Conference in June 2016. As a first step, five challenge groups were established under the lead of a ‘facilitator’, with members from the Consortium and input from nominated external experts. The roadmap identified a large number of research actions, as well as their expected impact and the means and timelines for their implementation. The actions identified through this process were refined further by the Executive Committee of ICPerMed, with a focus on those deemed ‘ready for action’. The resulting Action Plan sets out a discrete set of activities which will form the basis of the work programme for ICPerMed member organisations over the next two years. It will also feed into the proposed European Research Area Network on personalised medicine (ERA-PerMed), which should start its work by the end of 2017.

    The aim of ICPerMed is that over the next two years, ICPerMed member and the European Commission (EC) will work together to implement these actions, reporting regularly on progress and sharing knowledge, and bringing  benefits  to citizens and health systems.
