Alliance4Life is a strategic project of ten research institutions from nine Central and Eastern European countries. The project aims to highlight current gaps in health research and to reduce the gap between the innovative performance of new and original members of the European Union.

The second H2020 project of the now 13-member Alliance4Life consortium. It is a new continuation of the now formally existing international alliance of leading research institutions and universities operating in the field of biological and medical sciences in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Over the next three years, intensive cooperation will be developed to implement a number of examples of good practice, which have already been pilot-tested in the Alliance’s activities to date. The aim of the project is mainly to improve the institutional culture and strategic management of institutions and to be an inspiration for improving the conditions for excellent science in Central and Eastern Europe.


Our Center is honored to be the project coordinator of the Project “Molecular, Cell and Clinical Approach to Healthy Aging (abbreviated ENOCH)” from the Operational Program Research, Development and Education, administered by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic.
The main research objective of the project is to formulate a joint research program that is focused on research into aging and age-related diseases, namely cancer, chronic inflammation and degenerative diseases during the implementation project phase from 2018 to 2023. Thanks to this project unifying five major research institutions in the Moravian Region (Institute of Molecular and Translation Medicine at Palackého University in Olomouc – IMTM, the Regional Center of Applied Molecular Oncology of the Masaryk Oncological Institute – RECAMO, the Department of Neurology at the Faculty of Medicine, Olomouc University Hospital and the Blood Cancer Research Group at Ostrava University – BCRG), a unique platform for top scientists in Moravia will be created.
