Crane in brief


CRANE will exploit the potential of health related data and procure the design of an all-in-one value-based service to create an integrated care model to improve chronic patient’s wellbeing.


Three buyer public health organizations supported by Four highly experienced expert entities will look after the success of CRANE during the project execution.

Main Dates

The kick-off of the project was the 1st of June 2021 and It will last until the 31st May 2026. The OMC is scheduled to start on March 2022 and to end by June 2022, and the call for tenders publication is expected on August 2022.

Pre-commercial Procurements

iCRANE will launch its Call for Tenders in Summer 2022. In Phase 1 we will invite Five bidders with 50,000€ budget each for the development of a feasibility study. In Phase 2 each of the Three selected proposals from Phase 1 will get 500,000€ to develop a Prototype. Finally in Phase 3 Two suppliers will be selected with 1,45M€ for a Field Testing.


Before launching our Call for Tenders, CRANE will get together with industry and stakeholders for ensuring that there is sufficient understanding of the needs of CRANE, that our approach is in scope of the industry capacities and that we manage to gather sufficient critical mass of bidders for delivering high quality results.


CRANE will make a direct impact on patients with chronic conditions or at risk of it, health and social care systems, local supply chains and industry. Chronic patients in rural areas will have access to self-management to improve their wellbeing. The health and social care systems will optimize their resources and increase their capacity. Local supply chains will have access to innovative production and the European industry will be able to boost its solutions and join forces with the -difficult to access- public sector.
