Research & Technology (R&T) Working Group

The Research & Technology Working Group seeks to bridge the missing mile between basic research and the commercialization of products. Having an equal partnership between academics and healthcare organisations represented by the members of the Virtual Physiological Human Institute (VPHi) and industries engaged in the predictive medicine provides a unique opportunity to explore areas of mutual cooperation and benefit.

The key goals of this group are:

  • Creating links between the VPHi Membership and Avicenna Industry Members
  • Promotion of in silico medicine in Horizon Europe Program
  • Working towards the creation of a certified tissue library for biological materials
  • Work on credibility building for AI technologies and policy asks
  • Medical community outreach

Priorities in 2023 - 2024 and beyond:


  • Certified tissue library: finalise 1st campaign & start 2nd campaign
  • AI success stories compilation & policy input
