SELFIE - EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation - Horizon 2020

(Sustainable intEgrated care modeLs for multi-morbidity: delivery, FInancing and performancE) is a Horizon2020 EU project that will contribute to the current state of knowledge and provide applicable policy advice on integrated care for persons with multi-morbidity. Currently, over 50 million persons in Europe have more than one chronic disease, and this number will increase dramatically in the near future. As a consequence, health care spending will increase to a staggering 20% of GDP. Multi-morbidity will become the number one threat to population health and economic sustainability of health care systems. New models of care for multi-morbid persons are urgently needed. SELFIE aims to improve person-centered care for persons with multi-morbidity by proposing evidence-based, economically sustainable, integrated chronic care models that stimulate cooperation across health and social care sectors. It also aims to propose appropriate financing/payment schemes that support the implementation of these models.

EU-TOPIA - EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation - Horizon 2020

The overall aim of EU-TOPIA is to improve health outcomes and equity of breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening programmes in ways that take full account of the different demographical, medical, political, economic and cultural contexts across Europe. We aim to do so by providing national, regional, and local policymakers with tools to evaluate and quantify their cancer screening programmes.

EQUIPT - European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)

EQUIPT brings together expertise from multiple disciplines and aims to provide policy makers and wider stakeholders with bespoke information about the economic and wider returns that investing in evidence-based tobacco control including smoking cessation agendas can generate.The EQUIPT team will eventually develop decision-support tools comparing the cost of tobacco control interventions with savings to the local economy and the wider health sector. In the first stage the existing UK decision-support tool will be used to develop a new suite of tools for use in four EU Member States – Germany, Spain, Hungary and The Netherlands. Following this, we will test the transferability of the return on investments [ROI] methods to other EU countries with a view to guiding pan-European, comprehensive tobacco control policies.
