ERA-Net / Funding Opportunities

Please find funding opportunities for transnational research on personalised medicine below. You can also use our ICPerMed Partnering Tool, which facilitates networking among universities, research and patient organizations, SMEs, industry and all other stakeholders interested in personalised medicine research.

New ERA-Net 'ERA PerMed' on Personalised Medicine

ERA PerMed (2017-2022) is a new ERA-Net Cofund Action on Personalised Medicine (PM), supported by 31 partners from 22 countries and cofunded by the European Commission. It aims to align national and regional research strategies and funding activities, promoting excellence, reinforcing the competitiveness of European players in PM, and enhancing the collaboration with non-EU countries.

ERA PerMed partners have decided to conduct up to 4 Joint Transnational Calls (JTC) together and to launch the first and cofunded JTC in order to fund international high quality research projects in PM.

ERA PerMed is thereby closely linked to ICPerMed and will foster the implementation of the Action Plan by funding transnational research projects in the field of PM.

ERA PerMed will launch in January 2019 the second Joint Transnational Call for Proposals to support translational research projects in the field of Personalised Medicine. With this ERA PerMed also wants to encourage and enable interdisciplinary collaborations towards the implementation of PM, by combining pre-clinical and/or clinical research with computational components and research on relevant ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSI) and/or research on the optimisation of the health care systems.

ERACoSysMed Call 2019

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.

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.

Further information is available on the ERACoSysMed website.

Nordic Call on Personalised Medicine

Five Nordic funding agencies have launched a call for proposals with the aim of funding Nordic projects that contribute to implementation of personalised medicine in health care. The call focuses on use of data for personalised medicine, clinical/regulatory as well as health economics perspectives and builds on strengths and synergies in the Nordic countries. The total funding budget is EUR 15 million.

The portal for applications for the Nordic Call on Personalised Medicine is now open and can be found on the NordForsk home page. The deadline for applications is 4 September 2018, 13:00 CET.

Flagship Canada/EU

The International flagship collaboration with Canada for human data storage, integration and sharing to enable personalised medicine approaches (Topic: SC1-BHC-05-2018) aims to build a collaboration of stakeholders in Europe and Canada in the domain of repositories storing and sharing human –omics data that will create a framework for long-term cooperation. Proposals shall include at least one participant from Canada and build upon the data quality metrics, standards and access policies developed by major international initiatives.

Horizon 2020

The European framework programme for research and innovation of the European Union – Horizon 2020 – provides many funding opportunities for personalised medicine research. Especially the societal challenge 1 “health demographic change and well-being” is relevant in this context. You can find open calls on the participant portal. You can also find funding for personalised medicine in other programme parts of Horizon 2020. For detailed advice please contact your national contact point (NCP) or visit the webpage of the Health NCP Net.
