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.

ERA-Net 'ERA PerMed' on Personalised Medicine

ERA PerMed (2017-2022) is a ERA-Net Cofund Action on Personalised Medicine (PM), supported by 32 partners from 23 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.

In December 2019, ERA PerMed launched the ERA PerMed Joint Transnational Call (JTC) 2020. The submission deadline for pre-proposals is 5th of March, 2020. It is expected, that consortia invited for the full-proposal stage, will need to submit their proposal on 15th of June, 2020.

For further information, please refer to the ERA PerMed website.

ERACoSysMed Call 2019

The ERACoSysMed consortium has launched its third 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.

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 call is now closed.

Horizon 2020

The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Union – Horizon 2020 – provides many funding opportunities for personalised medicine research. The Societal Challenge 1 “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing” is especially relevant in this context. You can find open calls on the Funding and Tenders Portal. You can also find funding for personalised medicine in other programme parts of Horizon 2020.
