R2GConnect presents EU4Health call for tender, published by the European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA), with the support of the German Federal Ministry of Health (BMG).
The European Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) has launched a tender with the scope of – design, development, piloting and delivery of a software called ‘EU Mobile App for Cancer Prevention’. The total amount of funding is 3 500 000 EUR.
The expected result at the end of the contract will be the delivery of a user-friendly, easy-to-use and understand, portable, and interactive IT tool to help people accessing a variety of available and publicly accessible sources (information, guidelines, best practices, recommendations and references) to reduce their cancer risks, and prevent cancer. The working product will be offered for free to the general population.
According to HaDEA “About 40% of cancer cases in the Union are preventable. Prevention is also the most cost efficient long-term cancer control strategy. It is estimated that the cancer burden can be reduced by up to 50% if scientific knowledge on causes of cancer will be translated into successful preventive actions, including through improving communication, including health literacy, with a view to increasing access to understandable messages on prevention, including by hard-to-reach and marginalised groups of the population.”
All interested digital health companies, start-ups, programmers, institutes and software companies are invited to participate in this public tender by April 29, 2022. Detailed requirements for the app are described in the tender documents. The tender must be filled out in English.
