News Item – 04 March 2018

Cross4Health aims at promoting and supporting collaborative health innovation solutions generated by Aerospace and Energy SMEs together with Health-related SMEs from sectors such as Biotechnology, ICT and Medical Devices. 60 SMEs selected in 2 OPEN CALLS will receive support worth up to €60 000. To support potential applicants Online Team Building Support Event is organised on 23 March 2018.

The call is open to proposals on cross health solutions based on a combination of different sectors. These solutions should help meet the needs of health care providers in Europe. Connected care, innovations from aerospace and energy sector can be a catalyst for such solutions. Based on the initial analysis of health challenges and subsequent interviews with Cross4Health cluster partners the following three key challenges are proposed:

  1. Provide safe remote care
    • The challenge is to help patients to undertake shared management of chronic diseases in order to remain independent and active in their communities using connected care solutions along the continuum of care.
  2. Optimized care environment of hospitals and other care institutions
    • This challenge is looking for solutions for more efficient care environments that support an approach to care that is predictive, preventative, personalised and participatory.
  3. Faster process from sample to result
    • The challenge is looking into solutions allowing for faster, more affordable, less invasive and more reliable sampling, testing and diagnosis.

Cross4Health 1st Open Call  will remain open from the 15th of February until
the 16th of May 2018 at 17:00 CET.


In order to facilitate  connections between companies from different sectors and countries to promote collaboration in seeking solutions to the challenges of C4H a virtual Team Building support event will be organised on 23 March 2018. The Team Building Event is expected to bring together SMEs from the Aerospatiale, Energy, ICT, Biotechnology and Medical Devices sectors from all EU and H2020 associated countries. For the event a special online conferencing tool will be used, so the participants will be able to join the discussions via Internet, from their own office. The detailed Agenda can be found below.
