The EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) has launched a joint transnational call to support health and social care research and innovation.
Current research suggests strong potential for improving quality of life for those living with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, with novel health and social care concepts and innovations focusing on the preservation of dignity, independence and social inclusion. Nevertheless, the availability and quality of such services varies considerably across Europe and beyond.
In this context, JPND is inviting multi-national research teams to submit proposals for ambitious, innovative and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects that address health and social care at both the macro level of systems and infrastructures and the individual level of patients, carers and families.
The National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) will be continuing its relationship with JPND in 2018.
Funding & Duration
Under this call, each country funds their own national participants in successful collaborative proposals, according to their national budget allocation.
The NHMRC has allocated up to $3M for Australian applicants, with a maximum of $750,000 over three years for each successful grant.
