The EU-funded MULTI-ACT project aims to increase the impact of health research on people with brain diseases. It will create and implement a new model allowing for the effective cooperation of all relevant stakeholders. This will be applicable in defining the scope of health research as well as new metrics for the evaluation of its results. The MULTI-ACT project will work with patient associations, academics, private stakeholders and the public to develop brand new tools to assess the value of research. It will be assessed from four different aspects: stakeholder agenda, scientific excellence, economic efficiency and social impact. The project kicked off in May 2018.
