About this programme

The starting point of this initiative is to reduce the current fragmentation of innovation ecosystems all over Europe. Consequently this initiative provides for renewed and reinforced coordination and cooperation mechanisms with Member states and associated countries but private initiatives can also be included.

With an ecosystem they are looking at the broader sense of the word so it not just about innovative people but also about infrastructure and processes. The end goal is to create a flow of information, resources, knowledge and talent within the ecosystem which should lead to sustained co-creation and breakthrough innovations in the longer run.

A total budget of 500 million EUR is foreseen for this part of the third pillar.

ERC grants awarded to professor Inez Germeys

Professor Inez Germeys leads the Center for Contextual Psychiatry at KU Leuven, which is a large multi-disciplinary research group focusing on the interaction between the person and the environment in the development of psychopathology. She has received a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant (INTERACT) and Proof of Concept grant (IMPACT). With these grants professor Germeys and her team researched a new mobile self-management therapy for patients with a psychotic disorder. The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in Daily Life (ACT-DL) was further developed for the clinical environment. In line with that the Horizon 2020 IMMERSE project aims to thoroughly evaluate strategies, processes, and outcomes of implementing a digital mobile mental health solution.
