logo enrich webChina is in the midst of a gigantic transformation process: away from "mass" and towards "class". High follow-up costs of the old growth path, political uncertainty and buying restraint as well as authoritarian tendencies on the part of the government to cope with current challenges determine the current picture in China. At the same time, the demands of the increasingly self-confident middle class are rising. A knowledge-based economy of industrialized modernity also demands a free and open exchange of information. Join our next webinar and you are invited to form critical, differentiated and objective opinions. Please register on ENIRCH in China website.

Horizon2020Type of action: IMI2-RIA Research and Innovation action

Deadline: 14 June 2018

The Innovative Medicines Initiative is a jointly funded partnership between the European Union, represented by the European Commission, and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA). Currently, one of the most challenging questions in human immunology is to understand whether it is possible to accurately predict which patients will fail to respond to treatment, which patients will sustain a longer term treatment response, or which patients will suddenly flare up during periods of disease control. The topic addresses the challenge of translating insights from treatment non-response and disease exacerbation into new treatment paradigms at the individual patient level.
