A Steering Board for Health should coordinate health programmes and health missions under Horizon Europe, guide applicants and create greater visibility for European health research programmes.

The outline of such a steering board for health is presented as an amendment in the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing the specific programme implementing Horizon Europe – the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The BioMed Alliance supports the introduction of the amendment 551 and calls on the members of the European Parliament involved in the Horizon Europe political negotiations to maintain the Steering Board for Health proposal in the text legislation. It is time to walk the talk and to ensure deeper and longer-term collaborative and transnational initiatives that address the current gaps in the ‘innovation cycle’ and strengthen cross-fertilisation and collaboration across all relevant disciplines.
