Proposal for research infrastructure for the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures roadmap 2021 Scientific Council

The Scientific Council, together with the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures, invites applications for support for research infrastructure proposals to the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures roadmap 2021 (ESFRI). This allows researchers to submit proposals for new common European research infrastructure in the context of updating the European Research Infrastructure Guide. Projects must involve one of the priority areas identified in the needs inventory of the Scientific Council. The project proposal should be funded by reallocating existing grants to research infrastructures for the same purpose to the Scientific Council and addressing a priority area of another authority which also allocates resources to the proposed research infrastructure.

Addressing Suicide Research Gaps: Understanding Mortality Outcomes, Aggregating and Mining Existing Data Sets for Secondary Analyses (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed ): NIH This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks to support efforts focused on linking pertinent data from healthcare system records (e.g., suicide attempt events) to mortality data so that a more accurate understanding of the risk factors for, and the burden of, suicide among those seen in structured healthcare settings can be discerned. Specifically, data are needed on the type, severity, and timing of suicide predictors in the U.S. In addition to improving our national knowledge of the burden of suicide, these data offer the hope of yielding essential benchmarks for both public and private care providers/insurers, who increasingly will be seeking improvements to reduce the frequency of suicide events in their systems. Projects supported by this FOA will help address gaps identified in the 2014 Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention. Applicants seeking to integrate data sets from existing basic, clinical, and intervention research on suicide risk and behaviors to conduct novel secondary analyses aimed at identifying potential biological, experiential, and other predictors, moderators, and mitigators of suicide risk should apply to the companion NIMH Funding Annoucement - RFA-MH-20-307 Closing date: February 10, 2020 by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): RFA-MH-20-305, RFA-MH-20-307 Utilizing Invasive Recording and Stimulating Opportunities in Humans to Advance Neural Circuitry Understanding of Mental Health Disorders (R01, R21 Clinical Trial Optional): NIH The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications to pursue invasive neural recording studies focused on mental health-relevant questions. Invasive neural recordings provide an unparalleled window into the human brain to explore the neural circuitry and neural dynamics underlying complex moods, emotions, cognitive functions, and behaviors with high spatial and temporal resolution. Additionally, the ability to stimulate, via the same electrodes, allows for direct causal tests by modulating network dynamics. This funding opportunity aims to target a gap in the scientific knowledge of neural circuit function related to mental health disorders. Researchers should target specific questions suited to invasive recording modalities that have high translational potential. Development of new technologies and therapies is outside the scope of this FOA. Closing dates: February 10, 2020; October 9, 2020; June 10, 2021 by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
