ERA-Net for Cardiovascular Diseases
The goal of ERA-CVD is to create a European Research Area in which cardiovascular research is conducted and funded across countries via the responsible funding organisations, allowing research groups to jointly work on specific challenges, exchange ideas, and benefit from cross border expertise. ERA-CVD implemented one Joint Transnational Call (JTC2016, Heart Failure) with EC co-funding, and one non-cofunded call (JTC2017, Mechanisms of early atherosclerosis and/or plaque instability in Coronary Artery Disease) and continues to realize further JTCs.
ERA-CVD cooperates with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Heart Network (EHN). In addition, the exchange and cooperation with European Research Infrastructures, e.g. the ESFRI-initiatives are intended to support an efficient European framework for innovative transnational research on CVD and international research collaborations.
Joint Transnational Calls
Funding transnational collaborative and multidisciplinary Research and Technology Development (RTD) projects on cardiovascular research is one of the main aims of ERA-CVD. Three Joint Transnational Calls (JTC2016, 2017, 2018) were implemented during the lifetime of the ERA-NET Cofund (2015-2020).
The fourth Joint Transnational Call (JTC2019) is open: https://www.era-cvd.eu/388.php
