Fourth ERA PerMed Call for Proposals open

15 December 2020 – The ERA-NET ERA PerMed has launched the fourth Joint Transnational Call for multidisciplinary research projects on Personalised Medicine. With this call ERA PerMed wants to align national research strategies, promote excellence, reinforce the competitiveness of European players in Personalised Medicine, and enhance the European collaboration with non-EU countries.

Please visit the ERA PerMed website at:

  • Opening of online submission tool: 14 December 2020
  • Submission deadline for pre-proposals: 4 March 2021 (17:00 CET)
  • Submission deadline for full-proposals: 17 June 2021 (17:00 CEST)

30 funding organisations have agreed to jointly launch the fourth ERA PerMed JTC2021 in order to fund international highquality research projects in PM. The funding organisations participating in this call particularly wish to promote innovative interdisciplinary collaboration and to encourage translational research proposals. The available budget for this call is 24 Mio € (approx.).

With its fourth transnational call (non-cofunded by the EC), ERA PerMed fosters research and innovation activities that build close linkages between clinical research, computer science/medical informatics and research on ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) in the field of PM. This implies a wide range of multidisciplinary activities brought together by different stakeholders from academia, clinical/public health research and private partners such as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), policy makers, regulatory/health technology assessment (HTA) agencies and patients/patient organisations.

The overarching goal is to improve disease prevention and disease management, based on broader and more efficiently characterised and defined patient stratification, diagnostics and tailored treatment/prevention protocols for both patients and individuals at risk of disease. Early involvement of regulatory authorities and 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.
