ACIS attended the Bio-european International Event

ACIS attended the bio-european international event on 7-9 November in cologne (Germany) and gave a lecture about Código 100: matching biotechnology innovation with personalized patients needs.


The Galician Health Service will open a call for biotechnology projects in 2017 under Plan Innovation Codigo100, which will make available about EUR 5 million for the projects from various sources. The search will look for outstanding innovative therapies, diagnostic technologies and medical devices in order to advance more personalized treatments and solve our health challenges. The companies will not receive direct funding, but instead contract with the Galician healthcare system through Public Procurement of Innovation. This workshop is aimed at highly innovative enterprises (SMEs are very well received) in the field of biotechnology. Speakers will discuss the exchange of information to match drug companies with patients around personalized needs and demands.


The Health Knowledge Agency (ACIS) is a public Galician agency that was created to become the chief element of the health knowledge and innovation ecosystem in Galicia.
A new vision to face knowledge challenges. The most valuable tool for health professionals to care for health is knowledge. Experience, training, research, innovation and new technologies guarantee the constant improvement of the health practice, and it is necessary to comprehensively manage them all to obtain maximum value as far as patients are concerned.
On the one hand, assimilating and applying new techniques, therapies and treatments are essential practices to offer top quality healthcare. On the other hand, making process in knowledge that enables these new tools is becoming increasingly quicker. So it is fundamental to have the resources needed to manage such progress autonomously, swiftly and efficiently based on the results, and with a vision that can combine immediate requirements with mid- to long-term planning.
Our mission. ACIS is the Galician Public Health System instrument used to optimally disseminate knowledge since the time it emerges until it is transferred to society. To achieve this, it includes the following in the same value chain:


  • Training for healthcare professionals.
  • Health research.
  • Innovation from an open approach, not only for results to be transferred from the laboratory to hospital beds and also to the market, but also for them to generate economic returns that result in public health.
  • Assessing technologies to ensure that the most innovative ones are applied in accordance with top security criteria.
