The P4 FIT (Perspectives for Future Innovation in Tendon repair) project on the innovative study of the treatment and diagnosis of tendinopathies, coordinated by a group of international universities, including the University of Teramo, officially started in January 2021 .
A Keele University professor is collaborating with colleagues from across Europe to study new technologies and treatments for repairing tendon injuries and rehabilitating patients. Professor Nick Forsyth is part of the Europe-wide research consortium, Perspectives For Future Innovation in Tendon repair (P4 FIT), led by the University of Helsinki. The consortium, which also involves academics from Italy, Austria and Germany, has received a total of €4.1million in funding for a four-year project investigating innovative new treatments in tendon medicine, from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
EU funds international consortium with 4 million euros. Tendon injuries are increasing around the world. To support the development of new therapeutic and diagnostic methods for tendon injuries using nanomedicine, the EU Horizon 2020 Framework programme is funding the P4 FIT consortium with approximately four million euros over the next four years. Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is among the members of the consortium.
The EU consortium led by Professor Hélder A. Santos at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Helsinki has been awarded a 4.1 M€ grant from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks European Joint Doctorates (MSCA-ITN-EJD) grant agreement No 955685. The four-year project will begin in January 2021.
