Learn about our future calls for proposals

We publish draft information on future call topics a few months ahead of the official call launch. We do this to give you additional time to find or build a consortium and prepare a strong proposal. Note that as draft topics are still under development, the texts may change considerably between the versions published here and the call launch, and you should always check the final, approved topic texts once the calls are launched.

IHI call 8 launched!

The following topics were launched under IHI call 8 on 25 June 2024. The final versions of the call texts are available on the IHI call 8 page - applicants should read them carefully as they may have changed since the last versions published here.

  • A city-based approach to reducing cardiovascular mortality in Europe
  • Novel endpoints for osteoarthritis (OA) by applying big data analytics
  • Modelling regulatory sandbox mechanisms and enabling their deployment to support breakthrough innovation
  • Patient-centred clinical-study endpoints derived using digital health technologies


Get networking

If you want to apply to take part in a new IHI project, one of your first tasks will be to find or build an applicant consortium, and to do this, you will need to find partners. Tips on finding partners can be found on our find partners page.
