The ANR has teamed up with the ERA-NET EuroNanoMed II to launch a seventh joint transnational call for proposals for funding of innovative research projects in Nanomedicine.
Thirteen countries / regions are participating in this call for proposals: Belgium/Flanders, Belgium/Wallonia, Belgium/Brussels-Wallonia federation, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Spain.
The aim of the call is to support multidisciplinary and translational research proposals combining innovative approaches (basic, clinical, industrial) in the field of Nanomedicine. The initiative will bring together academic, clinical/public health and industrial research teams to develop innovative diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for the patient, thus enhancing the competitiveness of the European health industry.
Proposals can address any of the three subfields:
Each collaborative project consortium should have the optimal critical mass to achieve ambitious scientific & technological goals and clearly demonstrate the added value of the transnational collaboration. In particular, the project consortium should clearly demonstrate an added value in knowledge transfer towards either clinical (public health applications/research) or pharmaceutical/industrial applications. As such, a proposal must include partners from at least two of the three categories: academia, clinical/public health and industry.
Research proposals have to involve a minimum of 3 research groups eligible for the funding organisations participating in the EuroNanoMed II 7th Joint Transnational Call. Moreover, these eligible research groups must come from at least three different countries. No more than 2 eligible research groups from the same country participating in the call will be accepted. The maximum number of participants in a project consortium is 7. A majority of partners and the coordinator must be from EuroNanoMed II countries/regions participating in the call (see list above).
Funding will be awarded for a maximum of three years. The ANR will fund only the French partners in the selected projects.
The specific annex for French partners is available on this site. The call text, proposal template, and guidelines for applicants are available on this site or on http://www.euronanomed.net
Research project consortia who intend to submit a transnational proposal should register as soon as possible from January 7th 2016, at www.pt-it.de/ptoutline/application/EURONANOMED2016, by clicking on “to register” and following instructions.
