E-Rare 10th Joint Call: Get in touch with us!

EU-OPENSCREEN has been identified as a complementary European initiative by E-Rare in its 10th Joint Call for research proposals.

E-Rare, the ERA-Net for Research Programmes on Rare Diseases, announced its 10th joint call for "Transnational research projects on hypothesis-driven use of multi-omic integrated approaches for discovery of disease causes and/or functional validation in the context of rare diseases".

EU-OPENSCREEN warmly welcomes consortia bidding for the E-Rare call to come and discuss how our respective organisations might cooperate. Please email us at for more information. The transnational research proposals must cover at least one of the following areas, which are equal in relevance for this call:

-Combined multi-omics approaches (e.g. epigenomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, etc.) that complement genomics-based gene discovery strategies and that are driven by a lead hypothesis

- Functional validation of clinical or biological inferences obtained from “-omics” results

- Application of “-omics” approaches to rare diseases for which the gene(s) is/are known to enable insight into disease pathophysiology

- Development and application of concepts and methods for pathogenic read-outs of disease groups, which can be used as "blue print" to discover new disease genes and inform pathomechanism.
