The applicants included universities, research institutes, hospitals and industry partners, representing all regionals hubs from both networks.
As in the first call, the applications were evaluated by an external expert panel using the same criteria and the top-ranked applicants for each task were placed on a shortlist. The selected partners from each list have already been invited to join the project consortia with the intention to officially start the 2020 tasks on 1 February.
With the successful completion of the 2019 tasks, the 2020 tasks are expected to build upon the outcomes from 2019.
