FUNDING BULLETIN

April 2017

EURADIA is pleased to bring you a round up of funding opportunities that are available to European-based researchers in the field of diabetes and its complications.  We acknowledge that the information may not be complete and we take no responsibility for information on external websites. In order to keep this list up to date and useful we invite you to submit any information you might have on new funding calls relevant to the field. 

DIAMAP 2020

The DIAMAP Road Map for Diabetes in Europe is being updated. Professor Chantal Mathieu (Clinical and Experimental Endocrinology, KU Leuven, Belgium), is leading the DIAMAP 2020 project. The DIAMAP website has been upgraded and is now live. The website will host interactive research roadmaps along with the European diabetes research and funding databases. EURADIA is currently updating the Expert Groups from the original project and looking at ways to engage the diabetes research community in this initiative.  It is intended that DIAMAP will become a living and ongoing resource for diabetes research. We will keep you informed of upcoming DIAMAP-related events. 

LOOKING FOR RESEARCH PARTNERS?

If you are in the process of putting together a consortium or seeking research partners, please do us know at secretariat@euradia.org and we will include your project details both here in our newsletter and on the EURADIA website.

COST

COST is the longest-running European framework supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and academics across Europe. It is a unique means for them to jointly develop their own ideas and new initiatives across all fields in science and technology, including social sciences and humanities, through pan-European networking of nationally funded research activities. COST Actions are bottom-up science and technology networks, open to researchers and stakeholders with a duration of four years. They are active through a range of networking tools, such as workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions (STSMs), and dissemination activities.  More information on how to submit a COST proposal here.
