TOPFIT deploys a programmatic approach, aiming at moonshots at a timescale of >10 years, organised in dynamic (disease oriented) mission driven programmes that deliver impact for social innovation, health system innovation, economic growth and further scientific excellence, at a time scale of >5 years. Immediate results within 2 years are new coalitions of health, food and tech expertises that serve social impact and citizen science, new business development and scale ups, and challenging new combinations in scientific excellence.
Currently, experts from more than 80 companies and 150 researchers and health professionals are detailing roadmaps for four mission driven programmes on diabetes, cardiovascular disease, movement disorders and renal diseases. More programmes are envisaged.
These mission programs are interconnected in a Broad Basic Prevention Program for the development of the social and technological infrastructure for the improvement of health and care in the Eastern Netherlands.
