Funds for: Supporting transnational research projects on neurodegenerative diseases
Main beneficiaries: Research centres, SMEs

Priorities and funded actions:

* Better coordinate research efforts across countries and disciplines to more rapidly find causes, develop cures and identify better ways to care for people with neurodegenerative disease;
* Further develop researches on Precision Medicine as an emerging approach for disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment that takes into account individual variability in genes, biological/molecular characteristics together with environmental and lifestyle factors


* Establish a number of ambitious, innovative, multi-national and multidisciplinary collaborative research projects that will add value to the respective research areas;
* Involve patients, carers and the public on the implementation of the JPND Research and Innovation Strategy at all stages of the research

Among financed actions
* Research projects on one or several of the following neurodegenerative diseases:
– Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias;
