First, it was decided to continue increasing the amount of money for grants to foster exchange across ECCO centres and support innovative scientific projects.

The BIOCYCLE project has now been ongoing for almost 2.5 years. This project, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, aims at exploring different aspects of the question of treatment de-escalation in moderate-severe Crohn’s Disease, first requiring a combination therapy with anti-TNF and antimetabolites to control the disease. Once the disease has been stabilised, an unsolved question is to whether it is possible to de-escalate therapy. This question is important for several reasons including safety, tolerance, quality of life or costs to name the most prominent.
