The EU wants to encourage technological innovation in health-related sector. Thus, a new call for projects should be published at the beginning of next month in order to accelerate the development of novel imaging and brain stimulation methods and technologies.

Text:

Recent years have seen major increases in the range and power of these technologies across the basic, clinical and patient-centred domains of JPND. This joint transnational call will further promote research aiming at the development of novel and the advanced use of existing cutting-edge brain imaging and brain stimulation technologies related to neurodegenerative diseases. Approaches must be translational and patient-centered.

The upcoming call will focus on imaging technologies (such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Position Emission Tomography or super-resolution microscopy and molecular imaging techniques) and on Brain stimulation techniques (such as Deep Brain Stimulation, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, transcranial Direct Current Stimulation or Focused Ultrasound). 

This will be a two-step call, expected to be launched in early January 2020, with a likely pre-proposal submission deadline in March 2020. Further details will be provided with the launch of the call.
