4th Joint Transnational Call for Proposals (2021)

Basic Information

The JTC2021 is constructed around three research areas: Translating Basic to Clinical Research, Data and Information and Communication Technology and Research towards Responsible Implementation in Healthcare. Each proposal MUST address the modules Clinical Research, Towards Application in Healthcare and ELSA. Inclusion of modules Pre-clinical Research and Health Economic Research is optional. Each consortium submitting a proposal must involve at least three partners eligible for funding from three different countries whose funders participate in the call. At least two partners out of the minimum three eligible project partners of the consortium must be from two different EU Member States or Associated Countries. The project coordinator must be eligible to be funded by his participating funding organisation. The maximum number of partners per project at the pre-proposal stage is six

Aim of the joint call “MULTIDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH PROJECTS ON PERSONALISED MEDICINE – DEVELOPMENT OF CLINICAL SUPPORT TOOLS FOR PERSONALISED MEDICINE IMPLEMENTATION” - ERA PerMed fosters research and innovation activities on clinical research, medical informatics, and research on ethical, legal, and social aspects in the field of PM. This implies multidisciplinary activities. The overarching goal is to improve disease prevention and disease management, based on more efficiently characterized and defined patient stratification, diagnostics, and tailored treatment/prevention protocols for individuals at risk of disease. Close interaction with the different key contributors along the value chain should be included right from the project development phase to bridge the gap between first discoveries or inventions to market access. Research proposals submitted are expected to demonstrate the applicability of project outcomes to clinical practice and to combine clinical research, ELSI with data technologies
