Project Description

The RICHE project wants to establish a sustainable network for researchers, funders, policy makers, advocates and young people in Europe, to support collaboration in developing the future of child health research. It will produce an inventory of research, and reports, on gaps in research, and on roadmaps for the future of research. They will establish a unique, open, multi-lingual platform for child health research.


The project will develop formal processes for finding gaps in research, and for making roadmaps. These processes will be used to find current gaps, and make roadmaps for the future, including for the necessary research capacity. RICHE will support the development and implementation of child health research strategies, and the use of evidence for child health action. These in turn will support innovative research, improve social policy for children, and so improve the quality of life of European children.

"We had 23 partners from 17 countries. Our biggest challenge was to assemble the right forms and the budgets from all our partners in good time."
