ERA PerMed - JTC 2021

ERAPERMED Joint Transitional Call 2021


FRRB is pleased to announce the launch of the fourth ERAPERMED Joint Transitional Call JTC 2021 “Multidisciplinary Research Projects on Personalised Medicine – Development of Clinical Support Tools for Personalised Medicine Implementation”

With its fourth transnational call, ERA PerMed fosters research and innovation activities that build close linkages between clinical research, computer science/medical informatics and research on ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) in the field of PM. 

The JTC 2021 of ERA PerMed comprises three Research Areas:

• Research Area 1: “Translating Basic to Clinical Research and Beyond”.

• Research Area 2: “Data and Information and Communication Technology (ICT)”.

• Research Area 3: “Research towards Responsible Implementation in Healthcare”

Each proposal MUST address the modules 1B “Clinical Research”, 2 “Towards Application in Healthcare” and 3B “Ethical, Legal and Social Aspects”. Inclusion of modules 1A “Pre-clinical Research” and 3A “Health Economic Research” is optional. 

FRRB, partner of the ERA-Net consortium, has allocated 1.500.000,00 Euro for funding projects submitted by eligible institutions (Public or Private IRCCS, Public Health Care Providers (ASST), Universities and Research Institutes located on the Lombardy territory)

PLEASE NOTE:  differently from last year, FRRB has decided to fund also AREA 3 research activities but ONLY in combination with AREA 1 or 2:

a) In a consortium where there is only one Lombardy Beneficiary, the Lombardy PI working on AREA 3 shall have a role ALSO in AREA 1 or 2.

b) In a consortium where there are two Lombardy Beneficiaries, at least one Lombardy Partner shall work on AREA 1 or 2.
