Deadline: 19 April 2016
The Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life” (JPI HDHL) together with the European Commission has launched a new joint transnational call for research proposals for “Biomarkers for Nutrition and Health (BioNH)” using the ERA-NET Cofund instrument.
The call will focus on the identification and validation of biomarkers that are modulated by diet and that indicate a change in health status and/or the risk of developing diet-related diseases.
The JPI HDHL aims to create an International Research Network on BioNH through the projects that will be funded in this ERA-HDHL cofunded call and the already funded projects of the JA BioNH.
- The joint research proposals may be submitted by applicants working in universities (or other higher education institutions), non-university public research institutes, hospitals and other health care settings.
- Participation of private parties is encouraged as well as commercial companies, in particular small and medium-size enterprises.
- Only transnational projects will be funded: each consortium must involve a minimum of three partners eligible from the participating funding organizations and a maximum of six partners eligible from the participating funding organizations from at least three different countries.
- No more than two eligible partners from the same country will be accepted in one consortium.
How to Apply
There will be a two-stage submission procedure: pre-proposals and full proposals.
Both pre- and full proposals must be written in English and must be submitted online through the JPI HDHL Electronic Submission system.
