Call for European research projects for the evaluation of health care policies, strategies and interventions of neurodegenerative diseases, in the context of JPND
The ANR joins the EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) to launch a transnational call aimed at supporting transnational collaborations in the field of neurodegenerative disease. Fourteen countries from the European Research Area and abroad are joining this call: Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, and United Kingdom.
The objective of this call is to assess and compare policies, strategies and interventions related to neurodegenerative disease care, with regard to quality, access and cost-effectiveness. Examples of areas to be evaluated include care pathways, psychosocial interventions, end-of-life strategies, and educational programmes. Studies should benefit persons with neurodegenerative diseases, and their carers/families.
The JPND diseases are:
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and PD‐related disorders, Prion disease, Motor neurone diseases (MND), Huntington’s Disease (HD), Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA), Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)
The proposals should clearly demonstrate the added value of the transnational collaboration, and each proposal must involve a minimum of three and a maximum of eight funded research groups from at least three different countries of the funding organisations participating in this call (see list above).
Please note that the conditions for funding French participants are very restrictive. A research proposition addressing only health care issues will not be eligible for funding by the French agency. It is mandatory that applicants contact the French contact points in order to make sure that their research proposition can be funded by the French funding agency.
Funding will be awarded for a maximum of three years. The ANR will fund only the French partners in the selected projects.
The submission and evaluation process will be managed by the JPND Joint Call Secretariat (JCS) for the Joint Transnational Call 2013 (JTC 2013).
Joint proposals (in English) must be uploaded to the submission website (https://www.pt-it.de/ptoutline/application/JPND_HC). Submission (electronic submission only) must be completed before March 21, 2013 at 23:59 C.E.T.
