ICPerMed provides a platform to initiate and support communication and exchange on personalised medicine research, funding and implementation. The high level of participation from all over Europe and beyond enables ICPerMed to efficiently map the scientific and political landscape. This allows an alignment of research and funding activities on European and later international level. Based on the solid knowledge of ongoing efforts, ICPerMed members will develop and agree on future research actions. In addition ICPerMed will identify the requirements for a suitable framework in terms of infrastructures, resources and regulatory procedures to foster the development and implementation of personalised medicine.
Thus, ICPerMed will contribute to the reasonable and fair implementation of personalised medicine approaches into the health systems for the benefit of patients, citizens and society as a whole.
