The Euronanomed 3 network, in which the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS) is a partner, is launching a multilateral joint transnational call for proposals to support research in the field of nanomedicine.

The aims of the call are:

  • To support translational research projects that combine innovative approaches in the  field of nanomedicine and;
  • To encourage and enable transnational collaboration between public and private research groups from academia (research teams from universities, higher education institutions, public research institutions) and clinical/public health research (research teams from hospital / public health, healthcare settings and other healthcare organisations) or research teams from industrial enterprises (all size).

Project proposals will address multidisciplinary and translational research. The project proposals must cover at least one of the following areas that are equal in relevance for this call:
a.    Regenerative medicine

The projects should fall within Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 3-6 and the projects should propose advancements for a maximum of two TRL levels during their lifetime.
