The FNR is pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 ERACoSysMed joint transnational Call (JTC-2) for funding multilateral research projects in the domain of Systems Medicine. Deadline for pre-proposals is Friday, 17 March at 17:00 CET. 13 funding organisations are involved in this Call with a total budget of approximately 7.23 MEUR.
The call addresses important health-related societal challenges through effective transnational and interdisciplinary research collaborations. The funders participating in JTC-2 seek to foster the implementation of systems medicine approaches, in both clinical research and medical practice by funding a number of high quality research projects that will improve our current knowledge of human health and disease. The FNR supports this Call with 300,000 EUR as part of its INTER programme.
ERACoSysMed is a network of 15 funding organisations from 13 countries.
The central aim of ERACoSysMed is to enhance the implementation of Systems Biology approaches in medical concepts, research and practice throughout Europe and Israel by structuring, coordinating and integrating national efforts and investments.
ERACoSysMed is a five year programme funded under the European Commission ERA-NET Co-fund scheme in the H2020 Horizon programme which began in January 2015.
