Research on Alzheimer s disease and related disorders Québec France Canada Collaboration Deadlines Submission of the letter of notice: October 19, 2009, 5 p.m. Montréal time Submission of the full application: January 29, 2010, 5 p.m. Montréal time The purpose of the call for proposals is to support innovative international research projects focusing on Alzheimer s disease and related disorders, involving France, Québec, and the other Canadian provinces. It will encourage major scientific breakthroughs in the short and medium terms by combining and potentiating the strengths and sources of structural leverage of both countries, as well as foster knowledge translation. This call for proposals is led jointly by: - Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ), in partnership with the Programme de soutien à la recherche : soutien à des initiatives internationales de recherche et d'innovation of the ministère du Développement économique, de l Innovation et de l Exportation du Québec (MDEIE) and with the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec (MSSS); - Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR, France); - the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), through the Institute of Aging and the Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction. FRSQ will act as the coordinator and secretariat for the call for proposals. Endowed with the equivalent of approximately $2.5 million (CAD) or 1.6 million per year for 3 years, this call for proposals is part of the French, Québec, and Canadian governments respective action plans on Alzheimer s disease: 1. The French Alzheimer Plan (http://www.planalzheimer.gouv.fr/); 2. The action plan that the Quebec Government is developing based on the report recently published by its task force on Alzheimer s disease (http://publications.msss.gouv.qc.ca/acrobat/f/documentation/2009/ W.pdf); and 3. The priority given to the fight against Alzheimer s disease by the Call secretariat Anne Welcker FRSQ Extension 276 Other contacts At FRSQ: Joanne Goldberg FRSQ Extension 368 At ANR: Véronique Briquet-Laugier ANR, Agence Nationale de la Recherche At CIHR: Marilyn Desrosiers Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Toolbox ALL APPLICANTS Application toolkit: Forms required for this program Conditions and requirements for researchers from Canada (including Québec) September 1, texte AAP_Alz EN final Government of Canada through CIHR. The conditions and requirements specific to each research funding agency are available in the Toolbox and at the agencies websites. Field Conditions and requirements for researchers from France Help Contact Computer compatibility Eligibility Documents required - Letter of notice - Full application Evaluation of full applications Tenure of grant Grant amount Funding Source Management and funding rules Eligible expenses Applicants agreement Knowledge translation Report and presentation Intellectual property Supporting departments and agencies September 1, texte AAP_Alz EN final SCOPE Objectives Priority themes The aim of the research projects is to generate knowledge leading to better understanding of the aetiology of Alzheimer s disease and related disorders and to improved diagnosis, treatment and care for people suffering from these diseases and for their families. Projects must: Be large-scale, and Bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines, areas of expertise and research settings and with an array of approaches, and Cover fields where the interests and strengths of the researchers are already proven. The projects will have to be structured so as to contribute a new added value that the researchers, funded by each of the three research funding agencies, could not achieve on their own. In this call for proposals, the emphasis is on, but not restricted to, the following five major research themes: Markers for detecting the diseases and tracking its progression (genetic, genomic, neuro-imaging, and neuropsychological) Animal models and preclinical studies Emerging therapies, and innovative studies and clinical trials Prevention Psychosocial aspects, behaviour disorders, quality of life, natural caregivers, families, end-of-life care, organization of care and services. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Conditions Multiple applications Research team structure Research teams applying to this call for proposals must consist of researchers working in eligible institutions under the conditions and requirements of the relevant research funding agency. An investigator may participate in only one application under this call for proposals. The project research team is to be structured as follows: a Named Principal Investigator (called coordinateur for ANR), who will represent the project and be responsible for management of the application and for the project s internal scientific management; one co-principal investigator for each research funding agency involved in the project (called responsable scientifique for ANR), who will be responsible for managing the project with regards to the specific agency in question (the Named Principal Investigator will also assume the role September 1, texte AAP_Alz EN final of co-principal investigator for his or her research funding agency) and co-investigators (called partenaires for ANR). Each project research team must comprise: At least: one researcher from France and one researcher from Québec; OR one researcher from France and one researcher from a Canadian province other than Québec; OR one researcher from France, one researcher from Québec, and one researcher from a Canadian province other than Québec. And no more than eight investigators in total, including the Named Principal Investigator, the co-principal investigators and the coinvestigators. LETTER OF NOTICE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED Documents as attached documents to qc.ca Named Principal Investigator - Letter of notice form Content The letter of notice should: - Contain the name, contact information and institutional affiliation for the Named Principal Investigator, the co-principal investigators and the coinvestigators - Briefly describe the objectives of the research team, the proposed methods and the anticipated outputs - Briefly demonstrate that the proposed research project is in line with the topic of this call for proposals (Alzheimer s disease and related disorders) - Contain an overall budget estimate and estimates for each research funding agency involved Objective The letter of notice serves to: - Establish the applicant's eligibility for the competition - Check the application against the topic of the call for proposals - Help create an expert review panel qualified to review the submitted projects Procedure September 1, texte AAP_Alz EN final The letter of notice form should be: completed, saved in Word format and named Named Principal Investigator namefirst name(s) initial(s)_lialz.doc (for example SmithR_LIAlz.doc) and submitted by the Named Principal Investigator to the call secretariat (FRSQ) according to the rules for submission and by the deadline. An investigator may submit only one letter of notice under this call for proposals either as Named Principal Investigator, co-principal investigator or co-investigator. Delivery receipt Verification An ed acknowledgement of receipt of the letter of notice will be sent to the applicants by October 20, 2009, at the latest. Applicants are advised to contact the call secretariat as soon as possible if they do not receive this ed acknowledgement. The letters of notice will be verified by the call steering committee, composed of scientific officials from the three research funding agencies. Criteria - administrative eligibility of the researchers and of the research teams - fit between the objectives of the call for proposal and the proposed research project Only applicants whose letter of notice is deemed eligible and in line with the topic of the call for proposals will be invited to submit a full application.
