Call for Proposals for Transnational Research Projects on Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Neurological and mental disorders impose a high societal and economic burden to the European population, leading to costs of more than 800 billion euros per year. A wide range of brain disorders already manifests during development in early life. Such neurodevelopmental disorders severely curtail the quality of life of patients and their families often throughout their entire lifespan. Thus, neuroscientific research on neurodevelopmental disorders and its translation into diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes is a central pillar to promote healthy living in Europe and worldwide.

To address this topic, the 'Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research' (NEURON) aims to coordinate research efforts and funding programmes across Europe and beyond to promote disease-related biomedical research on neurodevelopmental disorders. NEURON particularly wishes to encourage multidisciplinary approaches and translational research proposals combining basic and clinical research that will ultimately help to develop new strategies for prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation. With this aim, 22 funding organisations from 20 countries launched a Joint Transnational Call for Research Proposals on ‘Neurodevelopmental Disorders’.
