Horizon Europe Projects

What is Horizon Europe?

Horizon Europe is a research and innovation funding program funded by the European Union (EU) with a budget of approximately €95.5 Billion, to be implemented in 2021-2027. With this program, the EU will fund the research and innovation dimension of the policies it carries out at the Union level (especially health and climate change).

With regards to health policy, the European Union attaches great importance to the prevention of diseases, the correct diagnosis and treatment, and the implementation of effective and less costly care options.

It is now evident that the financial and social burden of the aging population on the health and social insurance system will only be overcome by supporting new care models inspired by research and innovation, and healthy life policies that will keep people healthy for a long time.

Güven Future and Güven Health Group are among the rarest of institutions that provide healthcare service in all aspects of healthcare delivery, and offer an integrated, end-to-end approach within the scope of their competencies (such as digital health, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care).

An Integrated Approach to Digital Health, Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment, Care and Clinical Research on Our Horizon Europe Journey

True and effective digital health requires medical and technical personnel to model and work in close cooperation through every stage of digital health solutions. The harmony must be present from the beginning idea stages, all the way to when the technology is being implemented to end-users. In fact, the cooperation of patients and their relatives is also very important and thus, provides a wholesome approach to healthcare.

Güven Hospital, which has been accredited by JCI for more than 20 years and is the first private hospital to be accredited in Turkey, is being prepared under the coordination of Güven Future for Horizon Europe projects with its medical departments, specialist physicians and supportive health personnel.

“Pre-Commercial Procurement-PCP” and “Public Procurement for Innovation-PPI” type projects, which have a very important place among Horizon European projects, are among our focal points.


Güven Health Group has taken a leading role in the sector in terms of providing digital health services and realizing the concept of virtual hospital. The main goal of PCP and PPI type projects is to create demand for innovative goods and services developed by companies in the healthcare sector. Güven Future and Güven Health Group are participating in the relevant Horizon Europe calls for these projects as a “procurer” or “end user”.
