On the 1st of February 2010, the FP7 project RICHE was launched. RICHE aims at assembling and coordinating child health research throughout Europe. Its consortium, led by Prof. Anthony Staines at the Dublin City University, will assist decision-makers in policy and other stakeholders in developing sustainable future research activities for the benefit of child health. The three-year project has been funded by the 7th Research Framework Programme. As a so-called "Coordination Action in Health", the project has been granted 1.5 million euro. accelopment`s team assisted the coordinator and his 22 partner organisations in writing the proposal and negotiating the contract. Further details on the project are available on the RICHE project website and in our project factsheet.
