More impact of health research on people with brain diseases

The EU-funded MULTI-ACT project aimed to increase the impact of health research on people with brain diseases. It created and implemented a new model allowing for the effective cooperation of all relevant stakeholders. This is applicable in defining the scope of health research as well as new metrics for the evaluation of its results.

The framework of the project is intended for multi-stakeholder research initiatives, promoted by Health Research Funding & Performing organizations (RFPOs), that may already have been grouped in a multi-stakeholder initiative (e.g. Alliance) or that are willing to start conducting their R&I with a multi-stakeholder and co-accountable approach to reach a transformational mission.
