Fondation de France Issues Call for Projects on Parkinson’s Disease

Funding is available to support research projects that focus on Parkinson Disease in France.

The Fondation de France is an independent philanthropic network that undertakes its own programmes and those of the hundreds of funds and foundations under its aegis.

The Fondation has issued a Call for Projects on Parkinson’s Disease to support researchers who focus on Parkinson’s Disease in France. The objectives of the call are to:

  1. Develop knowledge about Parkinson’s disease.
  2. Promote the emergence of innovative therapeutic solutions.
  3. Explore new avenues for curative treatment.

In 2023, the Fondation de France will support research projects on the biology of the neural systems involved in Parkinson’s disease. The Foundation will be attentive to projects aimed at identifying therapeutic targets and/or collaborative projects involving several teams and disciplines.

To be eligible, applicants must be laboratories or research teams located in France. Project managers must be statutory researchers or clinicians.

Only one application per team will be considered.

Projects can be supported for a maximum period of two years for a maximum of €150,000.

The Fondation will also consider exploratory projects (models or technologies used, therapeutic targets studied etc) for one-year funding, in order to obtain proof of concept. This support for exploratory projects that are funded for one year may be renewed.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 14 June 2023.
