Responsible authors (residents of an ICPerMed member state) of candidate proposals published and developed during January 1st, 2016 to December 31st, 2017 from ICPerMed partner countries are eligible to apply. The launch of the Award will be the 19th of January and the deadline for proposal submission will be at the 2nd March, 2018.

The winners (maximum number of three) awards will be invited to the ICPerMed 2018 conference and will be given the opportunity to present their results during a plenary session. In addition, the successful candidates will receive support for the dissemination of the best practice example by the ICPerMed Secretariat in the value of 500 €.

The program will be centred on selecting “Best Practices in Personalised Medicine” (PM). These best practice examples can consist of one or several of the following:

1. Scientific paper focused on novel approaches for the implementation of PM
2. Training programmes for health personnel, increasing the level of awareness on the potential of PM
3. Examples for interdisciplinary or intersectoral groups of collaboration (governmental and non-governmental organisations, academic management, medical research and health care), for the implementation of PM, including ELSI activities.

ICPerMed is a newly established platform of over 35 European and international partners representing ministries, funding agencies and the European Commission. With the support of the ICPerMed Secretariat, the consortium works on coordinating and supporting research to develop approaches for personalized medicine. Thereby, the central aim of ICPerMed is to align and encourage joint efforts in personalized medicine research and implementation on a European and international level. The ICPerMed Secretariat is coordinated by the DLR Project Management Agency (Germany) with partners from France, Italy and Spain.
