About the programme
Special Objective 2 of DIGITAL aims to reinforce the EU’s core Artificial Intelligence (AI) capacities as a crucial driver for the digital transformation of businesses and public administrations. As data fuels the development of AI, DIGITAL also aims to set up sectoral European data spaces with the aim of linking them in the future into one true European data space. DIGITAL will also facilitate safe access to and storage of large datasets and trustworthy and energy-efficient cloud infrastructure. In addition, DIGITAL will strengthen and support existing artificial intelligence testing and experimentation facilities in areas such as health and manufacturing in the Member States and encourage their cooperation.

The Department of Economy, Science and Innovation of the Flemish government coordinates the Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action SAPHIRe, which started on 1 December 2018. The aim of the project is to secure the adoption of personalised medicine in all European regions, including sparsely populated and remote regions and regions with different innovation capacities.
The activities of SAPHIRe are complementary to the smart specialisation partnership on personalised medicine – S3P4PM, which is also coordinated by the Department of Economy, Science and Innovation.
