Joint Call for Proposals: National Data Streams (NDS)

On the road towards establishing a Swiss personalized health ecosystem, SPHN and PHRT have launched a joint call for proposals for National Data Streams (NDS).

NDS are multidisciplinary consortial research infrastructures (platforms) involving a national network of clinical and science/engineering partners. NDS that build on pre-existing infrastructures and data sets are preferred, should encompass clinical as well as analytical data (e.g., multi-omics), and include a lighthouse research project.

Find all information related to the NDS call on this page.
