NEURON JTC 2018 – Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research

Submission deadline


The NEURON Network has launched a joint transnational call for projects in the field of mental health and mental disorders.

The Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research (NEURON) aims to coordinate research efforts and funding programmes of its partner countries in the field of disease-related neuroscience.

With the newly launched call, NEURON wishes to facilitate multinational, collaborative research projects that will address important questions related to mental health and mental disorders. These may include research on mood disorders (major depression, bipolar disorders), anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, autism spectrum disorders, substance use disorders and other mental disorders.

Research proposals should cover at least one of the following areas:

  • Fundamental research on the pathogenesis, aetiology and resilience mechanisms of mental disorders. This may include the development of innovative or shared resources and technologies. Please describe clearly how the research is relevant to disease.
  • Clinical research aimed at developing novel strategies for prevention, (early) diagnosis, patient stratification, therapy and/or rehabilitation procedures for mental disorders.

Research on dementia is excluded from the present call.

Interested researchers are requested to contact the SNSF Administrative Offices to clarify eligibility issues before submitting their pre-proposal.

For further details, please refer to the programme's official website. The submission deadline for pre-proposals is 8 March 2018.
