The major aims of SAPHIRe are to support regions in Europe to structure the implementation and adoption of personalised medicine in regional healthcare systems by identifying and addressing specific regional gaps and barriers. To realise these goals, SAPHIRe will create a network of regions and their ecosystems, including all stakeholders across the entire value chains. Regions are well placed to bring personal medicine and healthcare closer to the citizen. Pilot projects in and between regions could provide the much-needed evidence for the adoption of personalised medicine in regional as well as national health systems. Best practices on the implementation of personalised medicine from regions across Europe will allow to develop a modular roadmap. Region-specific recommendations on policy, funding and investments needs will be extracted to stimulate the development and deployment of interregional (cross-border) collaboration projects. SAPHIRe will run over the next three years and plans to engage with regional stakeholders, including policymakers, industrial and academic actors via a series of thematic workshops.
