A number of significant EU funded research programmes have been developed through Eurolife or with Eurolife members, emphasising how this network partnership increases research competitiveness at the European level.
Eurolife partners have collaborated in research projects, networks of excellence, and training networks since the Fifth Framework Programme (FP5).
The main areas of research that the Eurolife partners share traditionally are neurosciences, cardiology, oncology, inflammatory diseases as well as infectious diseases and immunology.
In September 2009, the Eurolife partners established the Eurolife Scholarship Programme for Early Career Researchers. This programme facilitates research stays in laboratories at other Eurolife partner institutions.
Some years later, Eurolife opens the call Kick start grants to boost Eurolife member collaboration and participation in research projects within the Horizon 2020 framework programme. This call has been issued to promote leadership and collaboration of the research staff of Eurolife institutions who intend to apply for H2020.
