We aim to submit this proposal to Health~Holland, an organization that supports public private collaboration, in March 2020. More information regarding the Match Call of Health~Holland can be found here.
We contacted various organizations with a flyer and a brochure about the project proposal. With the launch of the website the full proposal is now available. At the moment we are discussing P4O2 with potentially interested parties. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you also would like to discuss possibilities.
In the evening of the 17th of September a meeting was organized for potentially interested parties to learn all about joining a PPP. On the evening of the 29th of September, another meeting was organized in Madrid (during the ERS Congress) to also meet international pharmaceutical companies. More detailed information about the research proposal was presented there. On the 21st of January we will organize a Deep-dive meeting for those companies that commited to P4O2. During this meeting we will analyze the needs and wishes of the different partners, in order to shape the proposal further.
Organizations that decide to join P4O2 will be asked to sign a letter of commitment, which also states the exact in-cash and in-kind contributions, which will be submitted with the project proposal to Health~Holland. All joining organizations are obliged to contribute in-kind. Small and medium enterprises are stimulated to also partly contribute in-cash, but are allowed to completely contribute in-kind. Health~Holland requires larger enterprises to contribute partly in-cash. Exact requirements can be found on page six of this document.
The proposal will also be submitted to the different universities for financial support via the ‘Grondslagen’, and the researchers will contribute a large amount of their time in-kind.
A concept version of the consortium agreement needs to accompany the project proposal and the letters of commitment when submitting to Health~Holland.
The proposal will be assessed by the LSH Evaluation Committee in about five weeks after the submission deadline. The board makes a decision approximately seven weeks after the deadline and after about ten weeks the awarding or rejection letter can be expected.
