Competitiveness cluster. Medicen’s performance contract
The Medicen competitiveness cluster has signed its performance contract for 2009-2011 with the aim of establishing Paris Region as a European industry leader in the spheres of diagnostic and therapeutic progress and in advanced healthcare technology.
The three major RD priorities identified in this strategy are translational medicine, biological systems for industrial use, and bio-therapeutic products and bio-digital systems (bio-IT, integration and modelling, e-healthcare, brain-machine interfaces). These priorities will be focused on the cluster’s primary research areas: cancers, neurovegetative, sensory and psychiatric disorders, and infectious diseases.
The cluster plans to establish a partnership with Systematic Paris Region to develop bio-digital systems and healthcare information technologies.
