ERACoSysMed Call 2019

9 November 2018 – The ERACoSysMed consortium has published a pre-announcement of the ERACoSysMed Joint Transnational Call for Proposals 2019. The aim of the call is to fund research projects that validate existing predictive computational models using biomedical data to expand the knowledge about human diseases and their treatment. The call is scheduled to be launched on February 1 2019.

Project proposals submitted under this call must focus on the analysis, interpretation and application of different biological and clinical data by appropriate computational models. Projects have to demonstrate the practical relevance of computational models for medical routine and their benefit for individual patients. As an example, the knowledge gained may help to enable drug repurposing across different diseases. Joint research proposals may be submitted by higher education institutions, non-university public research establishments, hospitals as well as commercial companies, in particular small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs), according to relevant national funding regulations. Organizations of the following countries are eligible to submit a proposal: Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia and Spain. Organizations from other countries might also participate in projects if their financial resources are secured, but won’t receive funding.

ERACoSysMed aims to enhance the implementation of systems biology approaches in medical concepts, research and practice throughout Europe by structuring, coordinating and integrating national efforts and investments. ERACoSysMed is a five year programme funded under the European Commission ERA-NET Cofund scheme in the H2020 Horizon programme which started in January 2015.
