You can now express your interest in IPCEI Health!

IPCEI stands for Important Projects of Common European Interest. These are integrated European projects that consist of multiple national projects led by companies and/or research institutes from multiple EU Member States. These national projects are complementary to each other, have a certain amount of synergy and contribute to the EU’s strategic goals. The Dutch government would like to know how many Dutch companies and knowledge institutes are interested in making use of this EU funding instrument.

More information about IPCEI Health and how to express your interest can be found on the  Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) website (in Dutch). Furthermore,  a webinar on IPCEI Health will be held on 4 April 2022 from 13:00 to 14:30 hours CEST. During this webinar, the government will provide background information and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. You can register for the webinar here. If you have any questions at this point, please contact  IPCEI Health coordinator Michelle van Wijk, via

IPCEI Health focuses on:

    1. Innovation of production technologies and processes for raw materials and pharmaceuticals, including making them more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
    2. Innovation in the area of antimicrobial resistance, rare diseases and upcoming health threats, complementary to HERA.
    3. Development of cell therapies and gene therapies, including production processes and technologies.


Both individual companies and consortia can register their interest until 19 April 2022. Registration is a condition for submitting a grant application as the main applicant at a later stage. If you do not register your interest in IPCEI Health, you can still participate in an existing grant application later, but you will not be able to submit your own request for funding.

If you have an idea for a project that might comply with the focus of IPCEI Health then please submit this before the deadline of 19 April 2022. The format, including optional templates can be found on the RVO website.
