#Específica de ER# Pre-anuncio convocatoria ERA-NET E-rare 2017

Preliminary announcement for E-Rare-3 Call for Proposals 2017 (JTC 2017): Transnational Research Projects for Innovative Therapeutic Approaches for Rare Diseases

Grants: 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 a clear translational research approach. Projects shall involve a group of rare diseases or a single rare disease following the European definition i.e. a disease affecting not more than five in 10.000 persons in the European Community, EC associated states and Canada.

The specific objective of this call is to promote research projects focusing on the pre-clinical development of therapeutic approaches in suitable existing animal or cell models.

Therapeutic approaches can include:

  • Cell-based therapy (e.g. somatic cell therapy, cell-based regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, therapies based on combination of cells with scaffolds or substrates, etc.);
  • Gene therapy (e.g. transfer of nucleic acids for therapeutic purposes including DNA, RNA, oligonucleotides, etc.);
  • Pharmacological therapy (e.g. use of chemicals or biopharmaceuticals including repurposing approaches, high throughput screening of molecules, etc.).

The following approaches are excluded:

  • Therapeutic approaches concerning rare infectious diseases, rare cancers and rare adverse drug events in treatments of common diseases;
  • Interventional clinical trials or any other interventional treatment of patients within the project (e.g. compassionate use)
  • The set-up of new patient registries/databases
  • Development of new cell or animal models. The relevant cell or animal model must be already established for the purpose of the project;
  • Surgery or radiation therapies.

Timeline: here will be a pre-registration procedure followed by a two-stage submission/evaluation procedure for joint applicationsThe call is scheduled as follows:

  • Call opening: 5th of december 2016
  • deadline for pre-registration: 1st of February 2017
  • deadline for submitting the full proposals:2rd of June 2017
