"MULTINATIONAL AND TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH PROJECTS ON NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS” 

 

Preliminary Announcement

 

The 'Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research' (NEURON) will shortly launch a new multinational call for proposals for “Multinational and translational Research Projects on Neurodevelopmental Disorders”. The aim of the call is to facilitate multinational, collaborative research projects that will address important translational questions relating to the neurodevelopmental nature of neurological and mental disorders. Neurodevelopmental disorders are behavioural and cognitive disorders that arise during the developmental period that involve significant difficulties in the acquisition and execution of specific intellectual, motor, or social functions1 . This call is limited to disorders, which show their first manifestations before the end of adolescence and impair the development and the function of the nervous system. Research on the continuation or progression of those symptoms with a lifetime perspective is allowed if addressing the consequences of disorders starting before adolescence. Research areas may cover a broad range of aspects associated with neurodevelopmental disorders, e.g. genetics, epigenetics, molecular mechanism of disease, neural circuits implicated in the pathophysiology, the relevance of prenatal and environmental factors including ‘in utero’ environment, the role of non-neuronal cells, resilience factors, or the development of treatments or diagnostic approaches specific for the developing nervous system or paediatric populations, including digital health innovations as well as other cross-sectional aspects of these diseases. The call will accept research proposals ranging from understanding basic mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders through proof-of-concept clinical studies in humans. The NEURON funding organisations particularly wish to promote interdisciplinary work and translational research proposals that combine basic and clinical approaches. In the context of the present call, the collaboration across different disciplines including both clinicians and fundamental neuroscientists is highly encouraged. The consortia are expected to submit novel, ambitious ideas that can only be achieved by the complementary collaboration between partners from at least three and up to five2 different eligible countries

This will be a two-step call, expected to be launched in January 2021, with a likely pre-proposal submission deadline in March 2021. Further details will be provided with the launch of the call. Final call information will be published on the NEURON website (https://www.neuron-eranet.eu) .
