The Joint Programming initiative JPND and the European Commission have announced a major cohesive action, entitled ‘JPcofuND’. This five-year initiative (2014-2019) has launched a joint transnational call for proposals in January 2015 aimed at supporting international research collaborations in three JPND priority areas: Longitudinal Cohorts, Animal and Cell Models, Risk and Protective Factors. The co-funded initiative will see more than EUR 30 million coming from the JPND member countries being made available, with an additional EUR 10 million European Commission “topping up” fund.
JPcofuND is a significant scale-up of implementation of the JPND research strategy, and a major step forward towards the realisation of a “European Research Area” dedicated to neurodegenerative disease research. JPcofuND further establishes concrete synergies with Horizon 2020 to address this global threat.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 643417 – JPcofuND.
