This new platform, established in June 2010, includes all projects related to life science and health supported by the European Commission since 2004. Far from being a static database, it aims to present the projects’ latest results in terms of technology offers, patents and publications. The platform also offers a row of interactive search devices which facilitate the identification of potential collaboration partners and the set up of partnerships between academia and industry in health research.

Currently, the platform - which is supported by the European Commission - contains 3300 EU-funded projects. In contrary to other more static databases, it presents reliable and updated information on the projects: the results of the projects will be continuously updated thanks to cooperation agreements with top technology transfer organisations in Europe representing large research organizations such as Inserm, CNRS and the Karolinska Institutet. Therefore, the platform will contribute to a better dissemination of publicly funded research results. On top of that, it offers interesting functionalities for researchers and institutions.
