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.

For NDS grantees, please find all grant management documents on the right side of this window.

The following 4 NDS projects will start in summer 2022:

  • Personalized, data-driven prediction and assessment of infection-related outcomes in Swiss ICUs (IICU) (Prof. Dr. Adrian Egli (USB) & Prof. Dr. Karsten Borgwardt (ETHZ))
  • Swiss Personalized Oncology National Data Stream (SPO-NDS) (Prof. Dr. Olivier Michielin (CHUV) & Prof. Dr. Bernd Bodenmiller (ETHZ))
  • Pediatric personalized research network Switzerland (SwissPedHealth) – a Joint Pediatric National Data Stream (Prof. Dr. Luregn Schlapbach (University Children’s Hospital Zurich) & Prof. Dr. Julia Vogt (ETHZ))
  • LUCID, Low Value of Care in Hospitalized Patients, a National Data Stream on Quality of Care in Swiss university hospitals (Dr. Marie Méan (CHUV) & Dr. Guillaume Obozinski (EPFL)).

Each NDS project will receive up to CHF 5 million and have a runtime of 3 years. SPHN funding requires matching funds from the participating institutions.

More information on the funded NDS projects will follow soon.

Please note: the call for National Data Streams is not taking new applications.
