For Researchers

General Information on ERA-CVD activities

Funding transnational, collaborative and multidisciplinary projects on cardiovascular research is the major aim of ERA-CVD. The ERA-CVD partners  plan at least three Joint Transnational Calls (JTC2016, 2017 and 2018) during the lifetime of ERA-CVD (2015-2020).

Documents for the submission of JTC2017 full proposals

The JTC2017 submission tool has been reopened until March, 15th 2017, 4 pm.


The second ERA-CVD JTC2017 is just announced.

ERA-CVD has established a partnering tool. Here you can offer information on you, your group and your institution. Thus you and other researchers in the field of CVD can search for adequate partners to write and submit transnational proposals.

If you plan to submit a proposal for an ERA-CVD call, please ensure to use the following registration and submission tool. Here you can upload your proposal and provide all necessary information (incl. project partners, aim, tasks and budget of your consortium/project) for the pre-proposal as well as when you are invited for a full proposal.

If you have questions regarding the ERA-CVD JTC2016, you can either contact the Joint Call Secretariat (JCS) or the responsible partner organisations.
