EU Funded Projects


In this project, leading European scientific teams which have created large relevant population cohorts, mostly dedicated to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) research, join forces to fully exploit available data towards improving SCA management. This will be done by:

  • Building a unique and growing database of >100.000 (DNA) samples including >20.000 SCA patient samples
  • Identifying risk factors and first-response treatment strategies that may explain the differences in SCA occurrence and survival between European countries
  • Collaborating with professional networks to translate the outcomes into European clinical practice for the prevention of SCA, and European infrastructures to improve survival after SCA

Horizon 2020

Between 2014 and 2020, the EU will provide almost €80bn in funding for research, mainly through its flagship research programme Horizon 2020.  Horizon 2020 is the biggest ever EU research and innovation programme and places more emphasis than ever on making sure that Europe’s promising ideas get from the laboratory to the market.Horizon 2020 will provide resources to encourage innovative small firms, fund more blue-sky research, and bring together different fields of science and technology. In doing so, Horizon 2020 aims to solve some of society’s biggest challenges, from ageing populations to the need for clean energy, and keep Europe’s economy competitive over the long term.
