Joint transnational call for proposal 2015 - European research projects on neurodegenerative diseases: risk and protective factors, longitudinal cohort approaches and advanced experimental models”

With the aim of tackling the leading medical and societal challenges faced by our society, a JPND joint transnational co-funded call was launched on January 8th, 2015 in partnership with the European Commission under the ERA-NET Co-fund scheme.The call aims to establish a limited number of ambitious, innovative, multi-national and multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects that will add value to existing research in three JPND priority areas:

  • Longitudinal Cohort Approaches
  • Advanced Experimental Models
  • Risk and Protective Factors

Twenty one JPND member countries in total are participating in the call and applications are invited from collaborative consortia of researchers from participating countries. Under Horizon 2020, the European Commission is providing additional funding to ‘top up’ the funding that is being made available through national/regional funding organisations.

Proposals may cover more than one of the topics specified above, as long as the relevant work is carried out in a country that will financially support the topic. The balance of awards between the three topics will be decided by the Peer Review Panel and will depend on the quality of the applications. More information on the participating countries in each topic, in addition to specific grant practicalities is available at the links below.

The call is conducted simultaneously by the participating funding organisations in their respective countries and coordinated centrally, with a single proposal submission and peer review system.  The call has a two-step procedure, with a first stage (pre-proposal submission) deadline of 23:59h C.E.T. on March 10th 2015.

Funding: The total fund for this call is over 30 million euro (for all participating countries) with a 10 million euro European Commission “topping up” fund.
