AIMs of the call

The aims of the call are:

  • To support translational research proposals that combine innovative approaches (basic, clinical, industrial ) in the field of Nanomedicine and;
  • To encourage and enable transnational collaboration between public and private research groups from academia (research teams from universities, higher education institutions, public research institutions) and clinical/public health research (research teams from hospital/ public health, healthcare settings and other healthcare organizations) or research teams from industrial enterprises (all size). The participation of SMEs is encouraged.

TOPICS of the call

Project proposals will address multidisciplinary and translational research. The project proposals must cover at least one of the following areas that are equal in relevance for this call:

  • Regenerative medicine
  • Diagnostics
  • Targeted delivery systems

General conditions for application

A consortium applying to this call must include research group(s) from at least two out of the three following categories, if eligible according to relevant national/regional funding organisation’s regulations for research funding:

  • academia (research teams working in universities, other higher education institutions or research institutes);
  • clinical/public health research sector (research teams working in hospitals/public health and/or other health care settings and health organizations);
  • enterprise (all sizes of private companies). Participation of small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) is encouraged.

Please note! Whilst applications will be submitted jointly by groups from several countries, individual groups will be funded by the individual EuroNanoMed II funding organization respective of the country/region from which applicants have applied. The applications are therefore subjected to eligibility criteria of individual funding organizations. Please note that the national eligibility conditions have evolved since the last EuroNanoMed call. Applicants are therefore strongly advised to contact their national representative as soon as possible in order to confirm their eligibility with their respective funding organizations.

Only transnational projects will be funded. Each proposal must involve a minimum of three research groups from three different countries including at least two eligible research groups from EuroNanoMed II country/regions participating in the 6th joint transnational call. The maximum number of participants in a project consortium is seven. Research groups not eligible to be funded (e.g. from non-funding countries or not fundable according to national/regional regulations of the participating funding countries) may participate in transnational projects if they are able to secure their own funding.

EuroNanoMed I & II call statistics

During the period 2009-2015, the ERA-NET EuroNanoMed I & II have successfully launched 6 joint calls for proposals.

These joint calls for proposals funded 51 transnational research projects on nanomedicine involving 269 partners from 20 countries/regions participating in the calls and 5 additional non-participating countries, with about € 45.5 million funding from the EuroNanoMed funding agencies and a further € 32 million funding from the research partners participating in the funded projects.

Country of origin of the applicants

Altogether, 1327 partners from 31 countries participated in these joint calls, in a total of 258 submitted projects. As presented in figure 1, the number of applicants per country has globally grown between 2009 and 2015, as well as the number of submitted proposals (from 24 to 66 respectively).

Participation of research organizations in translational projects in Nanomedicine

As EuroNanoMed I & II joint calls for proposals aimed at funding translational research projects in Nanomedicine, each consortium had to include teams from at least 2 of the following categories: academia, clinic/public health, industry. The distribution between these three categories among consortia funded in the 6 joint calls is outlined in Figure 2. Noteworthy, 53% of the funded projects included partners from all three categories, indicating the high added value of these collaborations in nanomedicine translational research.

Scientific / technological areas covered by funded projects

The 6 joint calls for proposals were open to projects covering at least one of the three priority topics of the European Technology Platform Nanomedecine: Targeted delivery systems, Diagnostics, Regenerative medicine. The coverage of these three scientific areas among funded projects is presented in figure 3.
