WP1, on behalf of the B1MG consortium, will invite representatives from all major and relevant stakeholder groups (academia, policy-makers, health care providers, research infrastructures, industry, and citizens representatives, among others) to co-create a stable framework to systematically tackle the challenges defined by the project.
The stakeholders, with the national mirror groups/WP5, will tackle the issues in three distinct areas, creating a space of dialogue for building an agenda that will include:
- A decision making framework for public-private involvement and increased literacy in personalised health amongst the stakeholders;
- A framework for future proofing the area to facilitate emerging health technologies integration into the healthcare systems and
- identifying future mechanisms of cooperation between stakeholders within and outside the EU.
Through the development of a problem statement and the framework document for each thematic area, the Stakeholder Coordination Group (SCG) will generate recommendations based on the assessment of their own integration processes, as well as monitoring multimodal genomic medicine programmes outside Europe to increase interactions with a global Personalised Medicine community.
Close attention will be paid to key projects and programmes outside of Europe, such as the MASTER KEY project from Japan, the Qatar Precision Medicine National Strategy, Genome Canada, Therapeutic Innovation Australia and the US-based Personalised Medicine Coalition. Experts from these initiatives will be invited to participate in expert panels.
Participants: EAPM (Denis Horgan), EMBL (Jan Korbel), DTL-Projects (Ruben Kok), EATRIS (Toni Andreu).
Participants' roles: EAPM to establish the Stakeholder Coordination Group and establish the terms of reference for its operation. Linked to the 1+MG working groups, EMBL and EAPM will coordinate the development of the problem statement and framework documents. DTL-PROJECTS to act as the link with the EU Member States, as well as the mirror groups, to ensure alignment. EATRIS to act as the link with other infrastructures, such as ELIXIR, BBMRI, ECRIN and non-EU initiatives.
