Research into the diseases of the brain benefits from joint funding schemes by networks of funding agencies and ministries in Europe and beyond the European borders. The ERA-Net NEURON Cofund2, as a funding platform focused on neurological and mental disorders, holds a strategic position in bringing pre-clinical and clinical research communities closer together and fostering translational research, while covering the entire value chain.
