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:
- Mechanistic / experimental research (in vitro, animal and/or human studies) focusing on how dietary factors interrelate with cognitive functions and processes.
- 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.
- Epidemiological research elucidating the relationship between diet and cognitive function across the life course, exclusively based on existing cohorts or other ongoing epidemiological studies.
- 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)
