    The recently launched Health Horizon Call offers funding for risk-based screening strategies. If this is in your field: 1st deadline is in October- start planning!

    Prevention and early detection continue to represent areas where effective strategies have the potential to generate major impacts. Effective screening may result in earlier disease detection which provides possibilities for more effective treatments, better disease control and care.

    Proposals should develop new or refined, targeted population-based screening interventions aiming at identifying populations or groups at high risk of developing disease.

    Stratification by health risk factors and determinants, such as (epi)genetic, exposomic, socio-economic, sex and gender, geographic, immunological, environmental, behavioural, occupational, cultural, and lifestyle habits should be addressed.

    The risk-adapted screening interventions should demonstrate a high level of accuracy, clinical value, cost-effectiveness, acceptability and the potential to be taken up by healthcare systems.
