Transnational Cooperation

JPCOFUND2

On 20 November 2018 JPND announced a new ERA-NET Cofund project, JPCOFUND2, established under the European framework programme for science and innovation H2020, which continues the work of the JPcofuND project (2014-2019) and other activities pursued by the European joint programming initiative on neurodegenerative diseases research (for more information please check this page).

JPCOFUND is implemented between 2019 and 2023, and its major activities are:

  • Organizing a call with both national and European funds (see below) and four additional calls without European funds;
  • Communicating/disseminating activities and initiatives of JPco-fuND through two symposia;
  • Monitoring and evaluating the impact of JPco-fuND actions.

This project receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 825664.

2021 Joint Transnational Call “LINKING PRE-DIAGNOSIS DISTURBANCES OF PHYSIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS TO NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES” – OPEN

The aim of the call is to establish a number of ambitious, innovative, multi-disciplinary and multi-national collaborative research projects that aim at identifying and measuring physiological effects and related biomarkers that can be linked to the development of neurodegenerative diseases, as well as enhancing the understanding of causal underlying cellular, molecular, metabolic, inflammatory or other systemic processes. Proposals must focus on one or several of the following neurodegenerative diseases:

  • Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
  • Parkinson’s disease and PD‐related disorders
  • Prion diseases
  • Motor neuron diseases
  • Huntington's disease
  • Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA)
  • Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)

Twenty-three regional and national funding agencies of JPND member countries participate in this call and applications.

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: pre-proposals and full proposals.

Pre-proposals submission deadline: 2 March 2021, 15:00 CET
