Joint Transnational Call for Research Proposals – Preannouncement

The EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) will launch a joint transnational call for proposals in January 2015

Supporting transnational research collaborations in three JPND priority areas:

  • Longitudinal Cohorts
  • Advanced Experimental Models
  • Risk and Protective Factors

The aim of the call is to support a limited number of ambitious, high level, innovative, multi-national and multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects that will add value to the respective research areas. The call will see more than 30 million euro being made available by JPND member countries, including a significant additional European Commission “topping up” component of up to 30%. This will be a 2-step call, anticipated to launch in early January 2015, with a likely first stage (pre-proposal submission) deadline of March 2015.

Indicative titles of each call topic are:

Topic 1: Genetic, epigenetic and environmental risk and protective factors of neurodegenerative diseases

Topic 2: Longitudinal cohorts in neurodegenerative disease research

Topic 3: Advanced experimental models of neurodegenerative diseases
