JUMPAHEAD is building the foundations for the JPND initiative by supporting the development and implementation of a Strategic Research Agenda, as well as its dissemination and evaluation. This will be achieved under the direction of the JPND Management Board.
The output of JUMPAHEAD over its 36 month duration will include innovative ways of pooling national expertise and resources and the establishment of closer and robust research collaborations among the participating states in the field of neurodegeneration research.
JUMPAHEAD will contribute to the European Research Area by addressing the existing fragmentation of national research programmes. It aims to improve to improve integration and co-ordination amongst research funders and research activities.
By doing so, it hopes to ensure the maximum benefit for all European citizens from our research efforts into neurodegenerative diseases.
