NEURON-2008 Neurodegeneration

Basic Information

Network NEURON
Aim of the joint call The aim of the call is to enable transnational, collaborative research projects that will address important questions relating to human neurodegenerative diseases of the central nervous system. Cerebrovascular diseases (e.g. stroke) are not included in the present call. The call may receive proposals within the breadth of research from understanding basic mechanisms of disease through to proof-of-concept clinical studies in man. The ERA-Net NEURON funding organisations particularly wish to promote multi-disciplinary working and to encourage translational research proposals (from bench to patient bedside) that combine basic and clinical approaches. Research proposals should cover at least one of the following areas: a) Fundamental research on the pathogenesis and aetiology of neurodegenerative diseases. b) Research to develop new strategies for (early) diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation procedures for neurodegenerative diseases.
