The MEDIC NEST project – Precision MEDIcine Clusters integrating Digital Technologies for New EcoSystems in HealthCare, aims to strengthen cluster management excellence and facilitate strategic partnering and exchange between clusters and specialised eco-systems across Europe in the field of precision medicine. It will use a cross-over approach towards digital technologies, through implementing a new “ClusterXchange” scheme by the ESCP-4x MEDIC NEST.
The project started on February 1st , 2022, is funded by COSME, COS-CLUSTER-2020-3-03 European Cluster Excellence Programme and will run for 24 months, until January 31st 2024.
Enhancing excellency of the partnering clusters through capacity building trainings, visits and benchmarking actions towards generating added-value support services supporting the growth and competitiveness of their SME members
Further updating and developing the strategic planning process for 4 partnering clusters in line with the goals of precision medicine, including a comprehensive portfolio of new services, a Partnership Agreement for the Meta Cluster on Precision Medicine, a European Meta-cluster Strategy in Precision Medicine, a Joint Action Plan for Precision Cancer Medicine 2022-2027, including a projects portfolio, in order to strategically support the European precision medicine ecosystem
Developing and implementing ClusterXchange scheme through the Partnership MEDIC NEST Meta Cluster in Precision Medicine
Broadening the cluster value chain in order to create added value, enhance the collaboration with local and regional public authorities and build partnerships in the field of precision medicine with a trans-sectorial focus on digital health solutions
Communicating and raising awareness of the Meta-Cluster in precision medicine towards stakeholders through a mix of media channels tools, awareness raising events and one Final Conference for dissemination and enlargement of the MEDIC NEST Meta Cluster for Precision Medicine.
IMAGO-MOL Cluster is coordinating the MEDIC NEST project, in consortium with Medvia (Belgium), Hellenic BioCluster (Greece) and BIOTECYL Health Cluster of Castilla y León (Spain).
The consortium is implementing the ClusterXchange scheme, through the Partnership MEDIC NEST Meta Cluster in Precision Medicine, looking forward to support 80 exchanges in the fields of medtech, digital technologies, biotech, pharma and medical imaging (structural & functional).
