ERA-NET NEURON has announced that in early 2024, it will launch a Call for Proposals for Multinational and Translational Research Projects on Bidirectional Brain-Body Interactions.

The aim of the call will be to facilitate multinational, collaborative research projects that will address critical translational and clinical questions to improve our knowledge concerning the role of bidirectional central nervous system-body interactions on the genesis and progression of neurological and psychiatric diseases. A better understanding of these interactions has the potential to uncover solutions to prevent and treat those disorders.

Research proposals should cover at least one of the following areas:

  • Fundamental research on the role of the bidirectional brain-body interaction on the pathogenesis and/or aetiology of neurological and psychiatric diseases. This may include the development of innovative or shared resources and technologies considered of relevance in the context of this call.
  • Pre-clinical and clinical research to develop new strategies for prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation procedures for diseases in which alterations in brain-body communication constitutes a relevant process of the pathology.

Funding is expected to start in early 2025.

The launch of the call is scheduled for the beginning of 2024 with a deadline for pre-proposals in March 2024.


Joint transnational research proposals may be submitted by research teams working in universities (or other higher education institutions), non-university public or private research organisations, hospitals or foundations, and commercial companies, particularly small and medium-size enterprises.

Only transnational projects will be funded. Each consortium submitting a proposal must comprise a minimum of three eligible research partners. Consortia including at least one partner from countries that are to date underrepresented in this funding scheme (Croatia, Hungary Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Taiwan, and Türkiye) may increase the total number of partners to six.
