Joint Transnational Call for Proposal 2018 (JTC 2018)

Basic Information

Joint Transnational Call for Proposals 2018 (JTC 2018) “Transnational Cardiovascular Research Projects driven by Early Career Scientists”

Network ERA-CVD
Aim of the joint call The call aims to promote cooperation and interchange between Early Career Scientists and thus enable international collaboration and new consortia establishment in cardiovascular research. Cardiovascular disease research can comprise hypertensive, ischaemic, pulmonary heart diseases and diseases of pulmonary circulation, other forms of heart disease, diseases of arteries, arterioles and capillaries and congenital malformations of cardiac chambers and connections and cardiac septa (analogues to ICD-10). The opportunity to independently develop and perform highly innovative research projects enables capacity building and empowering of Early Career Scientists.
