CVD research is not only a crucial area in health research overall, but could become an outstanding example of research driven innovation across Europe. An effective coordination of research at national and EU level, increased cross-disciplinary interaction and research advancements are urgently needed. By gathering their forces and funding capacities so far 18 countries aim at responding to this demand by setting up a new ERA‐Net Cofund action (European Research Area Network co-funded by the European Commission, EC) dedicated to cardiovascular diseases (ERA-CVD) . ERA-CVD officially started in October 2015.
ERA-CVD announces its first Joint Transnational Call (JTC2016)! For more information please click here.
