The aim of the JTC  call is to enable scientists in different countries to build an effective collaboration on a common interdisciplinary research project based on complementarities and sharing of expertise, with a clear translational research approach. Projects shall involve a group of rare diseases or a single rare disease following the European definition i.e. a disease affecting not more than five in 10.000 persons in the European Community, EC associated states and Canada.

2020 topics: 


  1. Development of novel therapies in a preclinical setting (including small molecules, repurposing drugs, cell and gene advanced therapies) focusing on condition(s) with unmet medical needs
  2. Use of disease models suitable for medicinal product's development according to EMA guidelines
  3. Development of predictive and pharmacodynamics (PD) biomarkers (with appropriate analytical methods e.g. OMICS) in a preclinical setting (e.g. in the validated model or in pre-collected human samples) for monitoring the efficiency of the therapy. The model chosen must mimic the human diseases and be transposable so that the biomarker identified in animals can be valid for humans
  4. Proof of principle studies fostering an early (pre-clinical) stage of drug development (excluding interventional clinical trials of phase 1-4).


A consortium of 3-6 (or 8- see call) partners from a minimum of 3 countries is required. 


Funding: €140,000 total for the Israeli partner (optional €20,000 for coordination)

Duration: 3 years


Research Authority due date: 11.2.20

Pre proposal (required) due date: 18.2.20

Full proposal due date: 16.6.20



Israeli applicants should contact Chief Scientist to review and approve submission prior to application.
