About the SAPHIRe Project

The Consortium for Securing the Adoption of Personalised Health in Regions (SAPHIRe), aims to structure the application of personalised health at regional level which will drive the transition towards sustainable healthcare and personalised health.

To stimulate developments in personalised medicine and support the uptake in all European regions, including sparsely populated and remote regions, the EU Commission awarded a coordination and support action on Securing the Adoption of Personalised Health in Regions - SAPHIRe.
The project will support the agenda of the International Consortium of Personalised Medicine (ICPerMed), which was formally established in November 2016 at the initiative of the European Commission.
SAPHIRe is coordinated by the Department Economy, Science and Innovation (EWI) of the Flemish government.
Other consortium members include the Public Health Agency (PHA) from Northern Ireland, Hungary-based EIT Health InnoStars and the EuroBioForum Foundation (The Netherlands).
SAPHIRe will run for the next three years and plans to engage with regional stakeholders, including policymakers, industrial and academic actors via a series of thematic workshops.
