European Brain Research Area consortium (EBRA): Call for clusters



The EBRA consortium is launching a Call for Clusters to promote co-operation and exchange between brain research projects and networks, and thus enable or enhance international collaboration and the emergence of development of clusters in all areas of brain research.

A cluster is understood as an association of research projects that can be directed towards basic research, clinical research and/or methodological approaches under a common topic, and disease and/or thematic area.

The individual members of a cluster application should be complementary.

The cluster formation should lead to a step-wise change in the landscape of that research area and should demonstrate a clear added-value in the collaboration/cooperation over individual projects including, but not limited to, sharing of resources (models, databases, diagnostics etc.), harmonisation of data, sharing of specific know-how and/or innovative technologies, etc.

The EBRA call for cluster is an open call until 1 January 2021.
