 Alliance4Life is a bottom-up initiative of ten leading life science institutions from nine EU-13 countries that aims at closing the divide in European health research and innovation. Members of the Alliance are progressive research institutions that have the necessary strength to stimulate institutional change.

Large-scale ESIF investments into the life science infrastructure alone could not close the R&I gap in Europe so far, financial support needs to be complemented by measures on research and innovation strategy at institutional and national levels. Institutions gathered in this Alliance believe that improving governance and managerial practices as well as transforming institutional culture will enhance efficiency and increase return on investment.

Alliance members will joined forces and share good practice through a Horizon2020 supported collaboration. The partnership will focuses on raising their institutional profiles to attract and retain international talents and to provide the right operational framework conditions including improved research management. Moreover, the goal is to help overcoming traditional national conditions inherited from the communist era that were neglected during the political transformation in the CEE region. Alliance4Life intends to become a role model for institutions in less performing regions and to serve as a hub of excellence through close collaboration with renowned European networks established in high performing countries. The Alliance will contributes to science policy and shape priorities at national and EU levels, especially with insight suggestions on how to increase participation in the Framework Programme and on using synergies between ESIF and FP to their full potential.​​

The project “Alliance for Life Sciences: From Strategies to Actions in Central and Eastern Europe”   received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 964997.
