Early 2015 ERACoSysMed will launch its first joint call for proposals. That call aims to support the development of proof of concept (demonstrator) projects that will improve our understanding of Systems Medicine and demonstrate the utility of this approach in a clinical setting.
The ERA-Net ERACoSysMed “Collaboration on systems medicine funding to promote the implementation of systems biology approaches in clinical research and medical practice” will take up its activities in January 2015 as the first ERA-Net on Systems Medicine under the EU framework programme Horizon2020. ERACoSysMed intends to support research areas with the highest potential for delivering tangible medical/clinical outputs and make personalized medicine a reality. Funding will be available for projects that address the clinical utility of results from systems biology research into medical research and practice thereby fostering and expanding the new field of systems medicine.
First call for proposals
The call is scheduled to open Mid February 2015. You can find the pre-annnouncement of the first call here. A definite call text will become available later. All information will be published on the ERACoSysMed homepage.
For the Netherlands, ZonMw is partner in ERACoSysMed and joins the first call for proposals.
