Third ERA PerMed Call for Proposals now open

17 December 2019 – The ERA-NET ERA PerMed has launched the third Joint Transnational Call for transnational research proposals in the field of Personalised Medicine. With this call ERA PerMed 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.

Patient and citizen empowerment and training strategies for the different stakeholders in PM are new modules in this third call.

Please visit the ERA PerMed website at:

  • Opening of online submission tool: 16 December 2019
  • Submission deadline for pre-proposals: 5 March 2020 (17:00 CET)
  • Submission deadline for full-proposals: 15 June 2020 (17:00 CEST)

31 funding organisations, of 23 different countries and 6 regions, have agreed to launch the third Joint Transnational Call for research projects in PM. This represents the second of three additional calls non-cofunded by the European Commission. The available budget for this call is 27 Mio € (approx.).

With its third transnational call ERA PerMed fosters research and innovation activities that build close linkages between basic biomedical research, clinical research, physical sciences, bioengineering, bioinformatics and biostatistics, epidemiology, socio-economic research, as well as research on the integration of PM into clinical practice and on ethical, legal and social implications across the participating countries and beyond.

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 protocols. Proposals submitted under this call are expected to demonstrate the applicability of project outcomes to clinical practice and to include research on ethical, legal and socio-economic implications and/or research on the optimisation of health care systems. They may also consider patient and citizen empowerment and training strategies for the different stakeholders in PM.
