THCS core activity is the fund of research and innovation projects through joint transnational calls involving a large number of Research and Innovation Funding Organisations on common priorities and topics set out in the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda.
The funding of Joint Transnational Calls (JTC) for collaborative research and innovation projects is critical to enhance the cooperation between researchers and innovators working to support Health and Care Systems transformation across Europe and beyond. This will help reducing fragmentation of research and innovation in this field and coordinating efforts and initiatives across Members States and Associated Countries in Europe and beyond.
Through THCS, Research and Innovation Funding Organisations will implement a common strategy and align research and innovation funding programmes and topics by launching JTCs for collaborative R&I actions. Building upon the current portfolio of instruments for R&I projects, innovation actions, twinning and alignment of national projects, the Partnership will address the whole research and innovation value chain and promote the funding of actions that provide concrete answers to the health and care challenges and support practices in different contexts and intervention areas.
A broad range of research and innovation activities will be supported. This includes applied, innovative research as well as development of strategies, activities for successful implementation, testing and adoption of interventions and solutions in the different partner countries and in different health and care contexts and settings. The Partnership will activate concrete mechanisms (brokerage events, partners search tools etc) to stimulate the participation of different types of stakeholders considering the rules of participation of different Research and Innovation Funding Organisations
