PERMIDES (2016-2019)

NCE Smart Energy Markets, Oslo Cancer Cluster and six European medicine and IT clusters have won the prestigious Horizon 2020 EU-project, PERMIDES. The EU project will use innovative IT solutions to develop personalized cancer treatment.

The EU project named «Personalised Medicine Innovation through Digital Enterprise Solutions» (PERMIDES), will apply revolutionary new digital systems to developing new cancer treatments. This will be done by matching SME’s within IT and cancer treatment from the six clusters.

The matching will happen virtually as well as physically. Utilization of acquired competencies within Big Data Analytics from other industries, such as the energy industry, makes the development of new digital systems and solutions possible.

The project has been assigned 45 MNOK, of which 34 MNOK will go directly to cluster SME’s.


Project goals:

  • 120 businesses within IT and cancer treatment development will benefit from the technology transfer activities
  • 75 businesses will participate in networking conferences regionally and on EU level
  • 100 businesses will register their profile in a semantic match making portal
  • 90 innovation projects will be established between IT and biopharmaceutical businesses in cancer treatment through a voucher system
