Selected – 2022

Multinational and translational research projects on Cerebrovascular Diseases including Small Vessels and Brain Barriers Dysfunction - ERA NET Neuron - 2022

The aim of the call is to fund multinational, collaborative research projects that will address important translational questions in the areas of stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases including small vessels disease (CSVD) and the dysfunction of brain barriers.

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

a) Fundamental research addressing the pathogenesis, aetiology, progression, treatment and prevention of cerebrovascular diseases including CSVD as well as basic research to elucidate the role of brain barriers on cerebrovascular diseases. This may include the development of innovative or shared resources and technologies including computational and statistical tools, as considered of relevance in the context of this call.

b) Clinical research to develop novel strategies for prevention (including secondary prevention), diagnosis, patient stratification, therapy and/or rehabilitation for cerebrovascular diseases

This call is supported by 22 agencies located in the following countries: Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Turkey.

The ERA-NET NEURON seeks to strengthen patient engagement in research. Patient representatives and a panel of experts specializing in ethical aspects of research will participate in the review of the selected full proposals and provide feedback on patient engagement and ethical aspects, in addition to the scientific review.  All applications should include a description of expected outcomes with potential relevance for patients.

The proposals should be submitted by consortia composed by a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 research groups, from at least 3 different countries. Involvement of early career researchers (ECRs) as consortium partners is highly encouraged and will be considered in the project evaluation. No more than two research groups should be from the same country. Only the French partners of each selected consortium will be funded by the ANR.

Selected projects can be funded for a duration up to three years. Funding is expected to start early 2023.
