EU Joint Programme on Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) opens its 2021 call

Tuesday 12 January 2021

The EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) has announced a new joint transnational call inviting multi-national research teams to submit proposals for ambitious, innovative and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects aimed at identifying and measuring pre-diagnostic physiological effects and related biomarkers that can be linked to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. 

Proposals submitted under this call must focus on one or several of the following neurodegenerative diseases: Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease and PD-related disorders, prion diseases, motor-neuron diseases, Huntington’s disease, spinocerebellar ataxia and spinal muscular atrophy. The JPND is committed to Patient and Public Involvement, and proposals are expected to engage patients, carers and the public.

In addition, proposals must focus on one or several of the following research areas:

  • Demonstrating the relationship between early neurodegenerative processes and physiological disturbances,
  • Applying cutting-edge methods or technologies to improve the detection of early symptoms, 
  • Human or animal studies to decipher the neurodegeneration-derived processes causing early disease-specific signatures, 
  • Using digital technologies to link recognisable symptoms to physiological changes associated to neurodegeneration, 
  • Relating prognostic signs of disease with real-life measurement of physiological disturbances using home-monitoring and/or wearable devices, including wireless sensors for patient monitoring.

Pre-proposals must be submitted no later than 15:00h C.E.T. on 2 March 2021. For more information about the call, see:
