The National Science Centre and the JPI-HDHL consortium invite researchers to a call for international research projects: “Nutrition and Cognitive Function” Proposals have to follow a multidisciplinary approach and should cover multiple areas, such as:

  1. Mechanistic / experimental research (in vitro, animal and/or human studies) focusing on how dietary factors interrelate with cognitive functions and processes.
  2. Translational research (animal and/or human studies) delivering the physiological basis for the development of effective strategies to influence dietary behavior and/or to improve cognitive function and performance.
  3. Epidemiological research elucidating the relationship between diet and cognitive function across the life course, exclusively based on existing cohorts or other ongoing epidemiological studies.
  4. Pilot and/or proof of principle studies for interventions in humans, to develop new strategies for the maintenance and promotion of cognitive function and/or healthy dietary habits during the lifespan.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 8th of June, 2015, 23:59 (CET).

It is also required that Polish applicants provide basic administrative data via the OSF electronic submission system (type of proposal: UNISION) no later than within 7 days since the abovementioned deadline for pre-proposals.


Within this call the NCN Council has allocated € 500,000 (max. € 250,000 per project)
