The Case for Europe as a Leader in Research and Innovation for Global Health

This working paper from November 2011 explores the potential and makes recommendations for Europe’s role in research and innovation to improve global health. It highlights the need for coherence between Horizon 2020 and other key EU policies, including that on the EU’s role in global health, and the potential for global health research to play an instrumental role in achieving Europe 2020 goals of growth, innovation and social inclusion. The paper was presented at a session at the World Health Summit, Berlin, October 2011, where the session was used to develop and refine the paper. See the final version of the paper here.
