The European Partnership 'Transforming Health & Care Systems' (THCS) pools a critical mass of European, national, and regional and international scientific resources to address more efficiently similar challenges faced by health and care systems in Europe and beyond.
The partnership aims to create new knowledge and scientific evidence but also to co-design new solutions & support their transfer and scale-up across countries and regions.
The THCS consortium is mainly composed of a network of Ministries of Research & Innovation, Research & Innovation Funding Organisations and Ministries of Health or Regional Health & Care Authorities. It gathers partners from 64 organisations established in 23 EU Members States and associated countries.
Flanders is represented in the consortium by the Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship (VLAIO). Located in Flanders & interested to participate? Find out more on the dedicated VLAIO webpage.
Who can participate in Flanders? The target group is broad. All Flemish companies (both SMEs and large companies) that want to carry out a challenging and risky R&D project together with foreign companies, healthcare organizations and/or knowledge institutions can submit a project proposal.
The Partnership opened a first call for proposals with focus on 'healthcare of the future' beginning of 2023. The call is now closed and results are expected in Autumn 2023.

Partnerships group the EC and private and/or public partners, to coordinate and streamline the research & innovation initiatives and funding in some selected key domains.
The ROOT project obtained funding under Horizon 2020 topic ‘EGNSS applications fostering societal resilience and protecting the environment’. The project, which ran from November 2020 to July 2022, aimed to demonstrate the benefit of Galileo OSNMA signal to increase the robustness of critical telecom infrastructures.
The Flanders-based company Septentrio contributed substantially to completing this objective together with the other ROOT partners. The results of the project partially close a gap in the security of telecommunication networks dependent on satellite-derived time, with indirect benefits in curbing illegal attempts to disrupt network services.
