ERA PerMed will launch the second Joint Transnational Call for Proposals to support translational research projects in the field of personalised medicine in January 2019.
With this call, ERA PerMed also wants to encourage and enable interdisciplinary collaborations towards the implementation of personalised medicine, 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 healthcare systems.
The available budget for the call is approximately 30 million euros.
The Academy of Finland’s funding contribution to the call comes to 1.2 million euros. The Academy is prepared to fund Finnish consortium parties in up to four consortia successful in the call. The Academy-funded consortium parties will be incorporated into the Academy Programme Personalised Health – From Genes to Society (pHealth).
