JPND JTC Call 2018 - EU Joint Programme Neurodegenerative Disease Research
The EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) has launched a joint transnational call (JTC) to support health and social care research and innovation.
The JPND, which aims to support transnational collaboration on neurodegenerative disease research, has launched a call for proposals from multinational research teams aimed at increasing our understanding of the factors that contribute to the quality and delivery of health and social care for neurodegenerative diseases.
The call aims to establish a limited number of ambitious, innovative, multinational and multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects that address health and social care delivery at the macro level (system and infrastructures) as well as at the individual level of patients, their carers and families.
The neurodegenerative diseases addressed by the call are Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, Parkinson's disease and related disorders, prion diseases, motor neuron diseases, Huntington's disease, spinocerebellar ataxia and spinal muscular atrophy.
Interested researchers are requested to contact the SNSF Administrative Offices to clarify eligibility issues before submitting a pre-proposal.
For further details, please refer to the programme's official website. The submission deadline for pre-proposals is 6 March 2018.
