Find out how EU-OPENSCREEN can support your project

Individual researchers or consortia applying for international or national grants and aiming to screen for chemical tools to unravel their basic research questions are invited to contact EU-OPENSCREEN for support.
We will support you on the screening part of your application and enable you to file a strong research case. This can be achieved, e.g. by providing you help in writing, identifying potential gaps and bottlenecks that can be experienced during the project’s execution, or by enabling you to perform a pilot screen to test your assay.

We can help you to identify the right partner for your consortium among EU-OPENSCREEN Chemical Biology sites.

1st EJP RD Joint Transnational Call for Rare Diseases Research Projects

EU-OPENSCREEN warmly welcomes consortia bidding for the 1st EJP RD Joint Transnational Call for Rare Diseases Research Projects to come and discuss how our respective organisations might cooperate.

The E-Rare ERA-Net has successfully implemented ten Joint Transnational Calls for rare disease research projects since 2006. This effort is now continued in the frame of the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD) that has been established to further help in coordinating the research efforts of European, Associated and non-European countries in the field of rare diseases and implement the objectives of the International Rare Disease Research Consortium (IRDiRC).

The aim of the call is to enable scientists in different countries to build an effective collaboration on a common interdisciplinary research project based on complementarities and sharing of expertise, with a clear benefit for patients.

The topic of this call is Research projects to accelerate diagnosis and/or explore disease progression and mechanisms of rare diseases.

Transnational research proposals must cover at least one of the following areas, which are equal in relevance for this call:

Research to accelerate diagnosis, e.g:

  • New schemes for finding diagnosis for undiagnosed patients;
  • Improved annotation and interpretation of variants and development of diagnostic tests for the more prevalent variants;
  • Novel modalities of functional analysis of candidate variants through in vitro, cell, tissue or animal studies;
  • Omic or multi-omic integrated approaches for discovery of disease causes and mechanisms including development of relevant bioinformatic tools.

Research to explore disease progression and mechanisms, e.g:

  • Natural history studies and patient registries (also for clinical trial readiness). Whenever possible these should include development and use of patient reported outcome measures. In addition, the exploration of the use of standardized M-Health-based surveillance instruments and of patient entered data to gather information for natural history studies is welcome;
  • Identification of clinical biomarkers, clinical outcome measures and surrogate endpoints;
  • Identification of novel pathophysiological pathways in appropriate disease models that effectively mimic the human condition.

ERA-CVD Joint Transnational Call for Proposals 2019 (JTC2019)

EU-OPENSCREEN warmly welcomes consortia bidding for the ERA-CVD call “Transnational Cardiovascular Research Projects driven by Early Career Scientists” to come and discuss how our respective organisations might cooperate. Please email us at office@eu-openscreen.eu for more information.

ERA-CVD, the ERA-Net on cardiovascular diseases (CVD), published the Joint Transnational Call for Proposals 2019 (JTC2019): “Transnational Cardiovascular Research Projects driven by Early Career Scientists”.

The call aims to promote multi-disciplinary work for Early Career Researchers in different countries to build effective collaborations and interchange on common research projects. The opportunity to independently develop and perform highly innovative research projects enables capacity building and empowering of Early Career Researchers. The consortia should be based on complementarities and sharing of expertise in a field of CVD, with a clear translational research approach.

The deadline is April 29th, 2019 for proposals and there will be a one-stage evaluation process.

Please find all necessary documents in the download section of ERA-CVD:
