Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
The aim of the call is to enable scientists in different countries to build an effective collaboration on a common interdisciplinary research project based on complementarities and sharing of expertise, with expected impact to use the results in the future for benefit of patients.
Característiques principals
Research proposals should cover at least one of the following areas
  • Estimation of disease prevalence
  • Identification of biomarkers/companions for the diagnosis/prognosis of a RD
  • Identification of biomarkers/indicators/predictors of a rare disease or group of disorders (e.g. having the same aetiology) onset/progression (including collection of genetic, physiological, environmental data or variables….)
  • Identification of relevant endpoints for future studies that include potential biomarkers, querying patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and quality-of-life measures
  • Identification of biomarkers/variables for therapeutic approaches (pharmacology, drug repurposing, gene therapy, RNA therapy, cell therapy, medical devices…).

    Convocatòria (URL)
    Only transnational projects will be funded. Each consortium submitting a proposal must involve four to six eligible principal investigator partners from at least four different participating countries. No more than two eligible partners from the same country can be present in each consortium (further national limits may apply). This limit applies to Early Career Researchers and partners from underrepresented countries (see below)..

    The number of partners can be increased to 8 in two cases:
  • The inclusion of partners from participating countries usually underrepresented in projects (Slovakia, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden and Türkiye).
  • The inclusion of Early Career Researchers as full partners
  • Dotació
    The funding depends on national/regional rules. For Spanish entities:
  • Up to 180,000 € per partner (overheads included)
  • Up to 260,000 € per coordinator (overheads included)
  • Durada
    3 years
    There will be a two-stage submission procedure for joint applications: pre-proposals and full proposals.
  • Deadline for submitting the pre-proposals: February 15, 2023
  • Indicative deadline for submitting the full proposals: June 14, 2023
    Whilst applications will be submitted jointly by applicants from several countries/regions, individual groups will be funded by the individual funding organisation of their country/region that is participating in the call. The applications are therefore subjected to eligibility criteria of individual funding organisations.
    Due to the complexity of the call, if you are interested in submitting an application we strongly recommend that you contact the Servei de Recerca well in advance of the deadline.
