NMBP-15-2017: Nanotechnologies for imaging cellular transplants and regenerative processes in vivo

This program supports the development of imaging techniques at a cellular or close cellular levels in living organisms. 

Activities supported 

This program supports the creation of medical imaging equipment prototypes that are: 

  • Highly sensitive. 

  • Possibly non-invasive. 

  • Clinically applicable, taking into account medical regulatory aspects. 


The applicant must be a consortium of at least 3 different unrelated legal entities in 3 different Horizon 2020 affiliated countries.  


The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 5 and 7 million would allow this area to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. Funding rate is 100%. 

Upcoming calls 

This program will have 1 more call on 2016 October 27 which has a budget of 40 million euros that is shared with 2 other research programs.
