The DSV has been strongly involved in European research infrastructure projects funded by the European Commission. Its teams have participated in the establishment of five of these infrastructures in the fields of proteomics, genomics, structural biology, medical imaging and translational research.For more information: see the ensemble of projects funded by FP7.
With the new funding program Horizon 2020 launched by the European Commission, the DSV is reinforcing its policy of support to researchers in order to increase their participation in European calls for projects. Thus, information and accompaniment actions are implemented, especially to help design collaborative projects and ERC projects. In addition, the DSV is involved in the National Contact Points (NCPs) network of the Horizon 2020 program, where it is responsible for distributing information and raising awareness in the research and innovation communities to European programs. Two DSV representatives are respectively members of the health and infrastructures NCPs.
