In December 2014 it was announced that the consortium InnoLIFE receives a EUR 2.1 billion grant from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. Within the InnoLIFE consortium 144 partners of leading businesses, research centres and universities from 14 EU countries have joined forces, including Medical Delta. With the grant, further research is financed into healthy living and active ageing. As a partner of Medical Delta, Leyden Academy on Vitality and Ageing expects to make an important contribution to the research and innovations that will be developed within InnoLIFE. The activities are expected to start in mid-2015.
