Joint calls for proposals are the centrepiece of NEURON’s transnational activities. On an annual basis, the ministries and funding agencies networking within NEURON launch joint transnational calls (JTCs) in the field of disease-related neuroscience.
What NEURON funds
NEURON JTCs address important topics from the areas of neuroscience, neurology or psychiatry. Call topics are usually kept quite broad to cover various aspects of a research field and to allow for participation of different disciplines in the projects. NEURON aims to support basic, clinical and translational research, directed at a better understanding of the brain and nervous system and related diseases in order to pave the way for new or improved means for diagnosis and therapy. NEURON aims to promote intense and ease to manage top-level research collaborations across Europe, Israel and Canada. To this aim, NEURON funds small, multidisciplinary research consortia consisting usually of 3-5 research groups originating from different NEURON partner countries.
