5th Joint Transnational Call for Proposals (2022)

Basic Information

With its fifth transnational call (non-cofunded by the EC), ERA PerMed aims to foster research in prevention in personalised medicine. The overarching goal of the call is the development of tailor-made strategies for prevention of disease and disease progression, at three different levels: i. preventive measures decreasing the rate of incidence (primary prevention), ii. early detection to increase the efficacy of a preventive therapy, even before symptoms are developed (secondary prevention), and iii. interventions preventing disease recurrence or improving patients’ care and quality of life (tertiary prevention). Research on prevention from over-treatment or overmedicalisation in primary, secondary and tertiary personalised preventive approaches is optional and could be part of research proposals, if applicable. The clinical relevance of the proposed PM approach needs to be convincingly demonstrated.

Aim of the joint call The overall objectives of the call are to: • Support translational research projects in the field of personalised medicine; • Encourage and enable interdisciplinary collaborations towards implementation of PM, in combining pre-clinical or clinical research with bio-informatics components as well as ELSA research or implementation research, including health economics; • Encourage collaboration between academia (research teams from universities, higher education institutions, public research institutions, research centres), clinical/public health research (research teams from hospital/ public health, healthcare settings and other healthcare organisations), private partners e.g. SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) as well as policy makers, regulatory/HTA agencies and patient organisations.
