Strategic Research Agenda (SRA)
One of the first steps towards realising the aims of JPND was the creation of a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) to provide a framework for future investment and address how the European research effort can most effectively be harnessed to improve prevention, diagnosis, treatment and patient care for neurodegenerative diseases.
The JPND Research Strategy, which forms the basis of the SRA, was launched on February 7th, 2012.
Five Thematic Priorities for future research were identified:
- The origins of neurodegenerative disease
- Disease mechanisms and models
- Disease definitions and diagnosis
- Developing therapies, preventive strategies and interventions
- Healthcare and social care
The first implementation of the JPND Research Strategy began with a phased approach to annual activities and action groups over the period 2012-2014. The second phase, to be implemented over the period 2015-2017, is ongoing.
