Cardiovascular and neurovascular disease - Fondation Leducq Transatlantic Networks of Excellence 2018/2019
The Fondation Leducq Transatlantic Networks of Excellence Program provides $ 6,000,000 over five years to teams of researchers working collaboratively in the areas of cardiovascular and neurovascular disease. Deadline for submitting proposals is September 5, 2018. Principal aim of this programme is to bring together international teams of researchers with complementary expertise and resources so that they can accomplish together what the members could not do individually.
The networks supported by the foundation should advance the science of cardiovascular and neurovascular disease, apply the knowledge gained through research towards the development of technology and therapeutics to improve human health, and support early-career investigators in cardiovascular and neurovascular disease. The Fondation Leducq currently awards up to five Transatlantic Network of Excellence grants per year.
Each network is built around a transatlantic research alliance involving two network coordinators, the European Coordinator and the North American Coordinator. Fondation Leducq recognizes the two coordinators as the leaders of, and representatives for, the network. The coordinators are jointly responsible for the design of the research program, the composition of the network, the execution of the research plan, and the oversight and allocation of the budget.
Fondation Leducq is a French non-profit health research foundation, the mission of which is to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular disease and neurovascular disease.
