ERA-Net E-Rare-3: Joint Transnational Call 2016 (JTC 2016)

The ERA-Net for Research Programmes on Rare Diseases (E-Rare) launches a joint call on the topic "Clinical research for new therapeutic uses of already existing molecules (repurposing) in rare diseases".

The aim of the E-Rare Joint Transnational Calls (JTCs) is to enable scientists in different countries to collaborate on a joint interdisciplinary research project to make the most of complimentary and shared expertise, with a clear translational research approach.

The specific objective of this call is to promote clinical and pre-clinical proof of concept studies for the potential application of medicinal products that are either already marketed or have reached a significant stage in the development process in rare indications. Projects should aim at discovering new therapeutic uses for agents whose clinical safety has already been documented to move quickly into proof of concept trials in the selected rare diseases’ patient population.

For further details, please refer to the programme's official website. The submission deadline for proposals is 3 March 2016.
