European research projects for the evaluation of health care policies, strategies and interventions for Neurodegenerative Diseases.

On December 10th 2012 a JPND joint transnational call was launched between 14 countries, to support appropriate approaches to understanding health care policies, strategies and interventions.
The aim of the call is to assess and compare pathways to care, through evaluating access to, the quality and the cost effectiveness of care provision and support for patients with neurodegenerative diseases across different care settings.

Research will be supported which addresses the levels of both health / social care delivery at the macro level (system and infrastructures) and at the individual level of persons with ND and their carers. Proposals may include research based evaluation of interventions relevant for those with ND. Where appropriate, proposals should include validation and improvement of outcome measures that are relevant for persons with ND and their carers in order to provide reliable tools for measurements of health related quality of life (HRQoL).

Applications were invited from collaborative consortia of researchers from participating countries.  The call was conducted simultaneously by the participating funding organisations in their respective countries and coordinated centrally, with a single proposal submission and peer review system. The proposal submission deadline was the 21st of March, 2013.

The total fund for this call was over 10 million euro (for all participating countries).

Six projects are currently being funded under this call. Details of individual projects can be found here and via the “Call Results” link on the left of this page.
