The EU Joint Programme—Neurodegenerative Diseases Research (JPND) 2017 call may also of particular interest to some researchers. The JPND call for multinational research projects for pathway analysis across neurodegenerative diseases opened on Monday 9 January 2017. As part of the Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme Priority Round 2, NHMRC will provide up to $850,000 of funding per grant over a maximum of three years. This will be for Australian-based researchers participating in multinational consortia that have been favourably reviewed by JPND. Please refer to the JPND website for further information. Applicants from Australia intending to participate in the call should download the Australian information sheet. Further information is also on the NHMRC website.

Researchers can contact us by phone or email if they have any questions about these schemes.

MRO processes related to each of these schemes are available from our new NHMRC intranet page.
