Impact Reports

Read essential reports and analyses on NEURON funded projects

The networks’ impact on the research community through NEURON funding is evaluated per call.

Accordingly, for each NEURON call an Impact Report gives an overview on the most important outcomes according to the ERA-NETs overarching objectives. Those reports are based on a questionnaire assessing key performance indicators, which the consortia complete six months after the projects’ end.

The major achievements yielded by the projects are highlighted.

Report on ‘External insults to the nervous system’ 2015

In May 2015 a symposium on the topic ‘External insults to the nervous system’ was held in Bucharest. The symposium is part of Work Package 2 ‘Development of a Strategic Research Agenda’ of the NEURON project.

Report on ‘National Funding Portfolios of European Funding Organisations in Neuroscience’ 2015

The report summarises results of a survey about funding activities in the area of neurosciences carried out among 15 NEURON partner organisations. It follows-up on a previous, extensive survey.

Early career scientists report 2010-2011

The ERA-NET NEURON performed a monitoring study to explore the position of early career scientists in the 2010-2011 ERA-NET NEURON joint transnational calls “Mental Disorders” and “Cerebrovascular Diseases”. Based on the study, no indication of a bias toward older researchers was observed. This indicates the transnational funding scheme from ERA-NET NEURON is a relevant source of funding for young researchers at the early stages of their careers.

Report on NEURON’s Joint Transnational Calls (JTCs) 2015

NEURON’s Joint Transnational Calls (JTCs) were most positively surveyed by the neuroscience community and stakeholders. One of NEURON’s core elements, the Joint Transnational Calls (JTCs) were surveyed by the neuroscience community and stakeholders. The added value of the JTCs and the multidisciplinary topics meeting the needs of the neuroscience research community were greatly appreciated. Efficient call conduction procedures were found to be matched by an informative website. Suggestions on dissemination of the JTCs will improve practices for the future NEURON calls.

Outcome Report Joint Transnational Call 2009

The outcome of JTC2009 ‘Technology Development’ was analysed using key performance indicators. Results were very positive and major achievements yielded by the projects are highlighted.

Joint Transnational Call 2008 ‘Neurodegeneration’
