1st JOINT CALL FOR EUROPEAN JOINT PROGRAMME ON RARE DISEASES (JTC 2019)

The pre-announcement of the Joint Transnational Call 2019 of EJP RD Pillar 1 has been published. The aim of the call is to enable scientists in different countries to build an effective collaboration on a common interdisciplinary research project based on complementarities and sharing of expertise, with a clear benefit for patients.
