FOREUM seeks to support projects that focus on stimulating application-driven research and
innovations that allow to improve both individual and population health of people living with RMDs (for instance via personalized treatment approaches). This call is about the impactful integration of technology into care for people living with RMDs and not about the development of new hard- or software. Projects will also be evaluated for sustainability in long-term patient care.
FOREUM primarily encourages collaboration across Europe and therefore requires multi-centre project applications involving partners from at least three different countries. Any given institution shall be allowed to lead on only one application. However, that institution, or its staff may participate in other projects as collaborators. The call shall be open to participants from EULAR membership countries.
Also, the Principal Investigator should come from a EULAR membership country. Centres from non-EULAR membership countries can participate as partners in exceptional cases (e.g. specific scientific expertise), but will not be eligible to receive research funding.
Applications should be made electronically (email to email@example.com). Necessary application forms can be downloaded at www.foreum.org.
All applicants considering submission of a proposal are invited to send a short ‘scientific letter of intent’ by 6 November 2022 to FOREUM (email to firstname.lastname@example.org) accompanied by a ‘lay (nonscientific language for the general public) summary letter of intent’, for review by patients..
