The ANR is associated to the ERA-NET EuroNanoMed II to launch a fourth joint transnational call for proposals for funding of innovative research projects in Nanomedicine.
Sixteen countries / regions are participating to this call for proposals: Belgium/Flanders, Belgium/Wallonia, France, Germany, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
The aim of the call is to support multidisciplinary and translational research proposals that combine innovative approaches (basic, clinical, industrial) in the field of Nanomedicine. This 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 should 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 towards 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 and a maximum of 7 partners from at least 3 different countries. 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 both on this site and on www.euronanomed.net.
Research project consortia who intend to submit a transnational proposal should register as soon as possible from January 14th 2013, at https://www.pt-it.de/ptoutline/application/euronanomed, by clicking on “to register” and following instructions.
Electronic proposal submission is mandatory on: https://www.pt-it.de/ptoutline/application/euronanomed.
No proposal submission will be accepted directly at ANR.
