Planning to commercialize your biomarker invention?
Thousands of candidate biomarkers are being discovered and the number of publications has exploded in recent years, but the discovery of a candidate biomarker is just the beginning of a long road to a commercial product.
Few findings enter to the specific assay development phase, pass the evaluation of analytical and clinical performance characteristics, and are eventually transformed into IVD assays, as biomarker development and commercialization is complicated, time consuming and expensive.

SAPHIRe – Securing the Adoption of Personalised Health in Regions
SAPHIRe is a 3.5-year project (2019-2022) managed by a consortium consisting of the department of Economy, Science and Innovation of the Flemish Government, the Public Health Agency of Northern Ireland, EIT Health/InnoStars and EuroBioForum Foundation. It aims to structure the application of personalised health at regional level which will drive the transition towards sustainable healthcare and personalised health. To realise this goal the consortium mapped personalised medicine and health policies in European regions, to understand barriers, gaps and to identify good practices. There was also a special emphasis on remote and sparsely populated regions and regions with limited resources, innovation and/or absorption capacity to ensure access to advanced developments in this field for all.

Vanguard Initiative Smart Health
Vanguard Initiative Smart Health
The Vanguard Initiative (VI) is an initiative of European regions seeking to influence the European political agenda. The initiative’s vision is that inter-regional collaboration to develop new, innovative value chains is essential to accelerate the uptake of innovative technologies and thereby provide solutions to the societal challenges facing European regions. VI has developed a methodology (learn – connect – demonstrate – commercialize) to facilitate and accelerate this type of collaboration. In 2021 the VI Smart Health pilot was launched. This pilot will bring the agenda to implement personalised medicine to the next level while transforming the connected European industrial value chains. The partner regions already established solid ecosystems combining biomedical, technological and data-driven expertise. By bringing these ecosystems together, a higher added value will be reached and boost the implementation of personalised medicine. It will realise an innovative approach for health and care in Europe.
