Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
Fondation Leducq is a French non-profit health research foundation, the mission of which is to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular disease.

The principal aim of this program is to bring together international teams of researchers with complementary expertise and resources so that they can accomplish together what the members could not do individually. The networks supported by the foundation should advance the science of cardiovascular and neurovascular disease, apply the knowledge gained through research towards the development of technology and therapeutics to improve human health, and support early-career investigators in cardiovascular and neurovascular disease.
Each network is built around a transatlantic research alliance involving two network coordinators, the European Coordinator and the North American Coordinator.
