All information about the call is available on the ERA4Health website (

Proposals must present research that addresses one or both of the following topics:

1) Repair and/or regeneration of the heart and/or the blood vessels

The proposals should focus on:

  • The identification of integrative approach, clinically relevant, based on molecular and cellular levels and/or the link between these two levels. Poorly known mechanisms should be the focus of the proposal e.g. (but not limited to) the inflammatory reaction, the amyloid accumulation, endogenous mechanisms of repair, linked to thromboembolism and/or related to macrovascular compartment and autonomous nervous system.
  • And/or the development of cell and non-cell-based approaches in combination with bioactive biomaterials/ bioengineered patches or grafts.

2) Chronic heart failure and atrial fibrillation

The proposals should focus on the development of treatment strategies that can reverse the pathophysiology responsible for chronic heart failure (especially with preserved ejection fraction), atrial fibrillation and/or the both diseases. The therapeutic strategies should take into account patient comorbidities and their potential treatment.
