From low precision drug therapy to high precision curative therapy through real-world data. RePo4EU is a european/global platform for mechanism-based drug repurposing.

A global hub

The consortium of REPO4EU (Precision drug REPurpOsing For EUrope and the world) ultimate goal is to build and grow an industry-level European online platform for validated precision drug repurposing with a global reach. This platform will operate as the go-to data hub for key information, training resources, matchmaking and cooperation in drug repurposing. The program has been granted almost €23M by the European Commission as part of the Horizon Europe Programme.

During the next 7 years, 28 partners from 10 countries (The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Spain, Sweden, Romania, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland and the United States) will join forces to make RePo4EU a reality and create a unique platform for drug repurposing, pooling stakeholders and expertise at a global stage to create a “made in Europe”, fully-fledged infrastructure for drug repurposing.
